Hampshire have signed former Gloucestershire all-rounder James Fuller from Middlesex.

The 28-year-old has signed a deal until the end of the 2020 season following three years at Lord's.

His white-ball prowess - he possesses a Twenty20 strike rate with the bat of 149.04 to add to his wicket-taking ability - saw him earn England Lions call-ups in 2016 and 2017.

Fuller, who grew up in New Zealand, said: "I'm really excited about my move to Hampshire.

"I'm looking forward to joining a strong team who have a great white-ball history and who are pushing to win the County Championship.

"I can't wait to join up after the break in November to get stuck in and work hard towards the club's goals as well as my own."

Hampshire director of cricket Giles White added: "James is a talented all-round cricketer with the ability to make an impact across all formats - we're looking forward to welcoming him to the club ahead of 2019."

Hampshire won their Division One relegation battle this past summer and were also crowned Royal London Cup champions.

Meanwhile England are available at 5/2 to win the 2019 World Cup.
