Kent batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond says the potential of the club's young players was a key factor in his decision to sign a new two-year deal.
"The future looks bright," the opener told BBC Radio Kent.
"We have guys with massive potential - it's easy to look round the dressing room and know you want to play here."
Bell-Drummond caught the eye with a flowing century against Australia at the end of June, and has been tipped for international honours by his Kent team-mate and former England batsman Rob Key.
The opener scored an unbeaten 55 at the weekend to help Kent to victory over Sussex in the One-Day Cup.
Kent resume their County Championship programme with a home game against Northants on Tuesday.
