Will Bragg's form had attracted interest from other counties

Will Bragg has signed a new two-year contract to stay with Glamorgan until the end of the 2013 season.

BBC Wales Sport understands the 24-year-old had considered leaving the county after being unhappy with the new contract negotiations.

Newport-born Bragg needs to score only 22 runs in the final game against Kent to reach the 1,000 mark in the LV= County Championship this season.

"I've been pleased with my form towards the end of the season," he said.

"I want to continue that into 2012 and establish myself in all forms of the game."

Bragg scored his maiden first-class century, a match-winning innings, in Glamorgan's Division Two County Championship win over Leicestershire at Colwyn Bay in August.

Half centuries have followed in each of his last five Championship matches.

Colin Metson, Glamorgan managing director of cricket, said: "We are delighted that William has taken his opportunity in the team so well and has particularly enjoyed a terrific end to the season.

"He has been playing some very exciting cricket and we look forward to him improving that form, and putting himself in contention for a place in Glamorgan's one-day side, next season."
