The left-armer has made constant progress over the last few seasons at Trent Bridge and made his England debut against Scotland in May.

He has since gone on to play in six one-day internationals and a Twenty20 for his country and is part of the squad for the five-match series with India that starts on Monday.

Gurney has taken 56 wickets in domestic cricket this season as well and director of cricket Mick Newell, also an England selector, is delighted to see him commit his future to the county.

“Harry has taken massive strides forwards during his time with us and we’re very pleased to have tied him down for the peak years of his career,” said Newell.

“It’s very important to have players in the squad who can play regularly in all formats and I see Harry in a group of players that can form our senior bowling group in the years ahead.”

Gurney said: “Since joining Nottinghamshire three years ago my career has progressed significantly and I owe Mick Newell and Wayne Noon a huge debt of gratitude.

“I’m delighted to commit to such a special club for another three years and excited about winning some more trophies for our loyal fans.”
