Worcestershire have clinched the signing of Adam Hose on a three-year deal from Warwickshire.

The 29-year-old will move to New Road for the start of the 2023 season upon the expiry of his current contract.

Hose moved to Edgbaston in 2017 and has played 89 matches across the formats, though most of his appearances have come in the T20 Blast.

He finished this season's Blast as the third-highest run-scorer with 558 runs and a strike rate of 160.97. Bears reached the quarter-finals after finishing top of the North Group while Worcestershire were bottom of the pile.

Confirmation of the move comes after news that Ed Barnard and Moeen Ali will switch in the other direction ahead of next season.

"I'm looking forward to a new chapter in my career at Worcestershire and delighted to sign for the next three years and hopefully beyond," said Hose, who want to play more Championship cricket going forward.

"I've got a fair amount of experience under my belt, but I’m only 29 and believe that my best years are ahead of me.

"Worcestershire have had a lot of success in recent times in white ball cricket, and I want to play my part in repeating that Vitality Blast success of 2018 and 2019.

"But Ed (Pollock) was given his chance to play more red-ball cricket after moving to Worcestershire from Warwickshire, and I’m hoping I can also earn that opportunity with my form and in training."

Head coach Alex Gidman added: "It is an excellent signing for the club. Adam has turned himself into an exceptional cricketer. 

"From a white ball perspective, he has become one of the best batters in the country.

"He is also very keen and eager to play more red-ball cricket and prove to everyone how good he is in that format as well. We’re delighted that he wants to come and play for us."
