Leicestershire have signed former Lancashire batsman Andrea Agathangelou until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old, who has also played for North West in South Africa, has been on trial at Grace Road.

Agathangelou, who has scored 2,549 first-class runs in 47 matches, hit 163 not out for the Foxes' second XI against Afghanistan this week.

He has been named in the county's 13-man squad for their County Championship game with Essex, starting on Sunday.

Head coach Andrew McDonald said: "We'd like to welcome Andrea on board. He is a good individual who caught our eye in the second XI this week with an outstanding performance.

"Andrea has plenty of first-class experience in this country having been at Lancashire for a number of years."
