Opener Rob Newton has signed a new two-year deal at Northamptonshire.

He has also been in good form in 2017, scoring five fifties and a century in four-day games and 234 runs in seven appearances in white-ball cricket.

"I've been here since I was 13 so it's great to be able to continue my career with Northants," Newton said.
