Sussex all-rounder Ollie Robinson has signed a new three-year contract with the county.
The 21-year-old, who is Sussex's Young Player of the Year, will now remain at Hove until at the least the end of the 2018 season.
Robinson, whose contract with Yorkshire was terminated for "unprofessional actions" in 2014, burst onto the scene in April when he scored a century against Durham on his first-class debut and his first outing for Sussex.
His 10th-wicket stand of 164 with Matt Hobden in that game at the Emirates ICG also broke a 107 year-old Sussex record, set by George Cox Snr and Harry Butt against Cambridge University in 1908.
The seamer went on to take 46 wickets in his debut season, with a best of 6-33 coming in the win against Warwickshire at Hove.
He featured in all three formats for Sussex, with the highlight in white-ball cricket the 3-16 he took to help the Sharks to a 10-wicket victory against Glamorgan in the NatWest T20 Blast.
Robinson said: "I'm absolutely thrilled with the new deal and very much looking forward to what my future with Sussex has to hold.
"With the young, up and coming squad that we have working together it is, and will continue to be, a great time to be at the club."
Sussex's professional cricket manager Mark Robinson said: "Ollie made a fantastic impact last year, impressing everybody with his control as a bowler and potential as a batter.
"There is a lot more to come from Ollie, and we look forward to watching him develop over the next few years."
