“They’re a really close-knit group of guys with a lot of ambition and hopefully I can add to that and contribute to wins next season.”

Head of Cricket, Dave Houghton added: “We were looking for a specific type of cricketer and someone to enhance our bowling attack.

“Logan came highly recommended by our contacts in New Zealand, including John Wright. He gets his wickets with balls that are pitched up and that's a good length in England, especially in the early season.

“He's on the verge of New Zealand side and bursting to try and get in. That's the type of cricketer we want - guys who are here with a point to prove. We look forward to welcoming Logan to Derbyshire.”
