Head coach Paul Nixon said: "We all know that Dieter can bowl at high pace and swing the ball, and he has been in the first XI squad on many occasions.

"Dieter’s batting has come on tremendously, and he is a whole-hearted performer in everything that he does, both in games and practice.

"There’s been tremendous progress with the bowling unit under Matt Mason, and it is important to have a range of bowlers. Dieter offers us something different and we’re delighted that he has signed an extension with us."
