New Zealand seamer Neil Wagner will be back at Essex this summer after agreeing a new contract with the county champions.
The 31-year-old left-armer, who helped Essex to the Division One title last summer, will initially return to Chelmsford from May until the end of July - with an option to stay on for the remainder of the season, subject to New Zealand Cricket approval.
Wagner, who will be available in all competitions, said: "Once I knew there was an opportunity to come back to Essex, I was very keen to get back to Chelmsford and build on the hard work and success of last season.
"Everyone at the club made me feel welcome last year and I absolutely loved my time there."
Head coach Anthony McGrath added: "We have been working hard on bringing Neil back for a while.
"His performances were excellent last season. He showed great commitment to the club last year and was integral to what we achieved."
