Durham have signed former Leicestershire wicketkeeper-batsman Ned Eckersley for the 2019 season.

The 29-year-old has been training with the club after not being offered a new deal by Leicestershire and has agreed a season-long contract.

Right-handed Eckersley scored more than 5,700 first-class runs in seven years at Grace Road, including 14 hundreds.

"I feel ready to go," he said. "I've spent a good amount of time here and feel my game is in good shape."
