Jordan has been with the county since the start of the 2013 season and his new deal will keep him at Hove until the end of 2016.

The 25-year-old, who previously played for Surrey, had a superb first season with Sussex, taking 59 wickets in the LV= County Championship and catching the eye of the international selectors.

Jordan made his England debut against Australia at the Ageas Bowl late last year and was part of the one-day and Twenty20 squads for the tour to Australia and the West Indies.

He also featured for England in the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh, playing often enough over the winter to earn an incremental ECB contract.

"It's great to have signed an extension to my contract at Hove," said Jordan, who was given his Sussex cap during the recent clash with Middlesex.

"I really enjoyed my first season with Sussex and hopefully I can continue putting in solid performances and to help us be successful, especially with our strong start to the campaign.

"I want to be able to help Sussex have the best chance of winning trophies, and hopefully the new contract will give me the platform to push for further international honours across the next couple of seasons."
