Chris Jordan: Sussex switch

The 24-year-old has taken 112 wickets in 40 first-class games, while his useful lower-order batting has brought him four half-centuries, but he was released at the end of this summer.

Sussex's professional cricket manager Mark Robinson said: "Chris has got enormous potential. He can bowl genuinely quick and has the ability to be able to bat at six or seven, and is a natural athlete in the field.

"As yet, he hasn't been able to find the consistency needed to fulfil his potential. He is still young and we hope we can help Chris fulfil this rich promise and become not only a matchwinner at Sussex but also for England."
