Essex off-break bowler Simon Harmer has signed a contract extension, which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2021 campaign.

The 29-year-old has taken 129 wickets over the past two Championship seasons.

"Harmy is a world-class bowler who can do serious damage with the ball," Essex head coach Anthony McGrath told the club website.

"He's such a vital part of the bowling attack, so I'm thrilled he'll be here for the foreseeable future."
