All-rounder David Willey has signed a three-year contract extension with Yorkshire.

Willey arrived from Northampton in 2016 and his new deal will keep him at Headingley until 2022.

The 29-year-old has played in 46 one-day internationals and 28 Twenty20 matches for England but was left out of the squad for the ongoing Cricket World Cup.

"Over the past three or four years I've probably been more unsettled on the pitch at Yorkshire, being in and out with England," he told the county's official website. "That makes it hard to feel part of the group.

"When you move to a new county it takes time to bed and for you to feel part of it, so moving forward this summer I'm going to be available a lot more and over the next few years I imagine it will be much the same.

"Hopefully I can become a much bigger part of things on the field and play a part of some success for the club."

Willey has taken 11 wickets in four Specsavers County Championship matches this year, contributing to a career record of 178 first-class wickets in 70 fixtures since his debut in 2009.
