Lancashire batsman Haseeb Hameed has signed a new four-year contract with the Old Trafford club.

The 19-year-old has been with the Red Rose county since the age of nine and made his first-class debut last season.

The England Under-19 captain hit an assured 91 against Surrey in his third match which led to head coach Ashley Giles comparing him to Jonathan Trott.

"When Ash came up to me and offered me the deal I was delighted to accept it," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"I don't think I've ever hidden the fact I do want to play for England in the future.

"Hopefully putting in performances for Lancashire that will come, but the key thing for me is taking it step by step whilst having those ambitions."
