Yorkshire all-rounder David Willey has signed a new three-year contract extension, keeping him at Emerald Headingley until the end of 2022.

The 29-year-old, who joined Yorkshire from home county Northamptonshire ahead of the 2016 season, will go on to represent the White Rose for a seventh domestic campaign at the very least having today put pen to paper. Willey’s current contract was due to expire at the end of 2019, but following his late omission from England’s ICC Cricket World Cup squad, the club moved quickly to secure his services for the next three years.

Willey, who has played 46 ODIs and 28 T20Is for England, now has the opportunity to represent the White Rose with increased regularity.

“It has been a difficult four years being in and out through he summers and I’ve not really been settled,” said Willey, who has taken 11 wickets in the four Specsavers County Championship matches he has played for Yorkshire in 2019. “With things moving forward, it’s really nice that I’m going to be here for an extended period and hopefully I’m around and can contribute to some silverware.
