Seam bowler Stuart Meaker has signed a new three-year contract with Surrey.
The 23-year-old, who came through the club's academy, has taken 44 wickets in the County Championship this season at an average of 22.56.
He told BBC London 94.9: "I'm really glad to be sticking around at such a great club. They've put faith in me and I feel I've got a lot to offer.
"The club is moving forward into an ultra-professional era and I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops."
Meaker, who has played two one-day internationals for England, added: "I feel like I've had a great year.
"I got 50 first-class wickets the first time which I'm immensely proud of and took my first 10-for.
"My sights are on an England career but I'm not going to get ahead of myself.
"I'm going to keep doing what I've been doing for Surrey and hopefully put a few more trophies in the cabinet."
Meanwhile, all-rounder Chris Jordan has been released by the Oval outfit.
The 23-year-old, who joined the county at the age of 17, scored over 1,000 runs and took 97 wickets during his time with Surrey.
Surrey team director Chris Adams said: "It's unfortunate that Chris hasn't been able to earn a regular place in the first team.
"If he is to fulfil his ambitions in the game it is in his best interests that he looks at opportunities elsewhere."
