Northamptonshire have signed South Africa batsman Temba Bavuma for part of next season.
The 28-year-old, who in 2016 became the first black African to score a Test century for the Proteas, will be available for eight Specsavers County Championship Division Two matches between May and July.
Northants chief executive Ray Payne told the club's website: "Signing a player of Temba's international stature underlines our ambitions as a club.
"We are keen to return to the Championship's top division and hopefully his runs will help us achieve that.
"His Test experience will bring an added dimension to the team and we're all looking forward to welcoming a cricketer who is admired and respected around the cricketing world."
Bavuma has played 31 Tests for his country, scoring 1,488 runs at an average of 33.81 with 11 half-centuries to go with that landmark ton against England.
He made another century against Ireland on his one-day international debut but has played only one more ODI since.
