Gloucestershire all-rounder Benny Howell has signed a three-year contract extension to stay with the Championship Division Two county until 2019.

Howell was the club's leading wicket-taker in the T20 Blast this summer, with 24 at an average of 16.04.

The 28-year-old will join up with Bangladesh Premier League side Khulna Titans in November, despite warnings about the security of western players.

"We are a club on the up and I want to be a part of that," he said.external-link
