Former England all-rounder Tim Bresnan is eyeing further success after agreeing a two-year contract to extend his stay with Yorkshire.

The 33-year-old had been linked with a possible Tykes exit at the end of the summer, but Bresnan says he never wanted to go elsewhere and is delighted to have secured a future with a club where he has won two County Championship titles.

I can now look forward to contributing towards any success the team might have over the next couple of years.

Bresnan told his county's official website: "It went on for a little too long, but I'm delighted to have finally got it sorted. It feels as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

"I continue to enjoy my cricket here, in fact almost as much as the first time I walked through the doors, and this is the outcome I always wanted. I'm delighted to sign.

"I've enjoyed some of the best days of my life through the club and the environment here is exactly what I need, always needing to be at the top of my game.

"The group of players is evolving and I can now look forward to contributing towards any success the team might have over the next couple of years."

Bresnan played in 23 Test matches for England, as well as 85 ODIs and 34 T20 internationals, while in first-class cricket overall he has taken more than 500 wickets and scored six centuries.

Yorkshire are currently priced at 1212/1 to win County Championship Division One this summer, with Somerset available at 9/1 and Nottinghamshire 1212/1.
