England one-day opener Jason Roy has signed a new three-year contract with Surrey, which will keep him at The Oval until the end of the 2019 season.

The 26-year-old batsman's deal will run alongside his 12-month white-ball central contract with the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Roy is currently in Bangladesh ahead of England's upcoming one-day series.

"I'm extremely proud to sign an extension at a place I call home," he told the Surrey website.external-link

The right-hander added 745 runs in 11 County Championship appearances and scored 387 runs at an average of 43 in the One-Day Cup, which Surrey ended as beaten finalists.

Ahead of the first one-day international against Bangladesh on Friday (09:30 BST), Roy had played 30 one-day internationals and 16 Twenty20 matches for the national side.
