Speaking on the new deal, James Coles said: “I’m really excited to continue being part of what is such an exciting time at Sussex.
“I can’t wait for what is hopefully going to be a positive future here for the next few years and hopefully a few more!”
Sussex head coach, Paul Farbrace added: “James has really impressed me with not only his high level of skill, but his approach to the game.
“He really looks like a player who will have an excellent future. He is a genuine all-rounder, who can bat anywhere in the top order and continue to develop his bowling.
“I’m really looking forward to watching him develop in the coming seasons.”
