Finn commits future to Middlesex

Middlesex have announced that Steven Finn has signed a new three-year-deal to stay at the county.

The deal will shadow the paceman's England and Wales Cricket Board central contract and means he will be available to play for the club at least until 2017.

It caps a good few days for Finn after he was recalled to the England squad ahead of the fourth Investec Test against India, which starts at Emirates Old Trafford on Thursday.

Middlesex managing director and England selector Angus Fraser told the club website: “This news, and the fact Steven has been selected in England’s squad for the fourth Test against India at Old Trafford, is great for the club. Middlesex are extremely proud to have developed Steven and to have helped him achieve what he has, so far in the game.

“Middlesex is his club, he offers us a great deal both on and off the field, and we are chuffed that he wants to spend at least the next period of his career with us. He is a fine bowler and a cracking young man. We love having him around and are fortunate to have him at the club.”

Finn said: “I am delighted to have signed three more years at the club I have spent my whole career with as a professional cricketer. I look forward to continuing to build on the club's status as a strong division one side and hopefully helping to bring success to the county over years to come.

"Needless to say I am hugely indebted to the club and the coaching structure, particularly Richard Johnson, in helping me develop in recent times. I couldn't think of anywhere else I would want to play my cricket.”
