Tim Bresnan

All-rounder Tim Bresnan has signed a new deal with Yorkshire running until the end of 2016, although he remains centrally contracted by England.

Pontefract-born Bresnan, 28, made his first-class debut for Yorkshire at Northamptonshire 10 years ago.

Since then he has played 125 first-class matches, taking 353 wickets and scoring 3,628 runs.

Bresnan becomes the sixth current Yorkshire player to sign a new contract this summer.

He follows England team-mate Jonny Bairstow, batsman Gary Ballance, spinner Azeem Rafiq and seam bowlers Steve Patterson and Moin Ashraf in committing his future to the club.

"Tim has firmly established himself as an England regular but his commitment to Yorkshire is vital in our on-going efforts of developing a strong squad based around players produced through the club development system," said director of cricket Martyn Moxon.

Bresnan has taken 57 wickets and scored 438 runs n the 18 Tests he has played for England, and has also appeared in 76 one-day internationals and 25 Twenty20 internationals for his country.
