Adam Rossington has signed a new contract extension with Northamptonshire.

The 25-year-old has hit 2,500 first-class runs for the Steelbacks at an average of 36.7 since arriving from Middlesex in 2014.

He has also added over 1,000 List A runs, averaging 42.83 during his time at Wantage Road and possesses an impressive strike rate of 149.88 with the bat in Twenty20.

"Adam has had a great start to the summer with the gloves. His batting can, and has, been match winning in all 3 formats and I'm delighted he has committed to us," said Northants head coach David Ripley.

"The next stage of his career is to see him pushing for international recognition."

Rossington was a member of the 2016 team that were crowned domestic Twenty20 champions.

The wicketkeeper-batsman added: "I'm delighted to have signed for another year. I've thoroughly enjoyed my last few years at Northants. I'm really happy here, it's a very talented group.

"As a team, we want to be challenging for silverware. Hopefully I can contribute some match winning performances and help Northants win some more trophies over the next couple of seasons."

Northants are 1212/1 to win the T20 Blast.
