Yorkshire have been handed a welcome and timely boost with the news Harry Brook has signed a new five-year contract.

The fresh terms keep the England batter at Headingley until 2027.

Brook has enjoyed a stunning 2022 after a breakthrough last summer, scoring 926 runs in 11 LV= Insurance County Championship innings to force his way into the Test fold.

"I’m delighted to extend my contract with Yorkshire and hope I can contribute to a lot of wins in the coming years," the 23-year-old said.

"Yorkshire is my home club and I’d love nothing more than to help bring some silverware to Headingley."

The news comes following confirmation of the departures of David Willey back to Northamptonshire and Tom Kohler-Cadmore to Somerset.

Dom Leech has also signed a new contract, keeping him at Yorkshire until 2024.

The 21-year-old, who came through the academy, suffered a leg injury last season but has returned to full fitness and features in a handful of T20 Blast matches this season.

"I’m really pleased to have signed a contract extension with Yorkshire and committed my future to the club," he said. 

"I’ve had a great taste of first-team cricket over the last few years and want to push for a permanent spot in all squads.

"I’ve enjoyed working with our new coaching staff and look forward to continuing to develop my relationships with them.

"It’s great that the Club have recognised my performances and rewarded me with this contract. Hopefully, I can play my part in the side winning some trophies."

Interim managing director of cricket Darren Gough added:: “Harry is an incredible talent and the performances he has put in so far this year have been nothing short of incredible, rightfully earning him an England call-up.

"It’s clear that he has a very bright future and it’s great for the club to be able to secure his services for a long period of time. 

"Dom is a highly regarded seamer and we are really excited to see what he can achieve over the next few years."
