Middlesex have confirmed that England fast bowler Steven Finn has penned a new multi-year deal with the English county club.

Finn made his first-class debut with Middlesex in 2005 and has gone on to pick 508 wickets from 141 games that include 12 five-wicket haul and a solitary 10-wicket haul. He has also played 134 List A and 76 Twenty20 games in which he accounted for 278 wickets combined.

“I'm delighted to have signed a contract extension with the club I have represented my whole career," said Finn.

"The club has come a long way since I first played for it and I feel we are still developing, and that is something I am excited about being a part of.

"I am optimistic about our chances in all three formats moving forward and want to help win more trophies for this great club."

In the ongoing season of County Championship, Finn snared 20 wickets in seven games and was the leading wicket taker in the recently concluded Natwest T20 Blast season as he ended up with 16 wickets from 10 matches.

Middlesex managing director of cricket Angus Fraser is delighted with the news and is confident that Finn has a huge role to play in the club's success.

“Steven remains an outstanding cricketer, the sort of player and person we want at Middlesex Cricket. Even though it seems as though he has been around for decades Steven is still only 28 and, potentially, has his best years ahead of him.

“The club continues to be extremely proud of what he achieves so, despite speculation, it was unimaginable to me that he would leave the club to play for another county.

“Steven has never expressed a desire to play for anyone other than Middlesex and I would like to see him finish his career with the club and to be remembered as one of our greatest cricketers. He has much to offer.”

Middlesex are currently positioned fifth in the table with 106 points from 10 games and are scheduled to take on Yorkshire next on 5th September.
