Former England seamer Ryan Sidebottom has agreed to return to Yorkshire on a three-year contract.
Sidebottom, born in Huddersfield, played for the Tykes from 1997-2004 before leaving to join Nottinghamshire, where he twice won the LV County Championship, including in 2010.
While at Nottinghamshire the left-arm paceman also revived an international career that stalled after making a solitary Test appearance in 2001.
He went on to take 79 Test wickets in 22 appearances and was part of the World Twenty20-winning team last May, but recently announced his retirement from England duty after the hectic international schedule took a toll on his body.
The 32-year-old had been the subject of interest from several counties after failing to agree terms on a new deal with Nottinghamshire, who were unwilling to offer a three-year contract.
Yorkshire, who finished third behind Nottinghamshire and Somerset in Division One of the LV County Championship last season, won the race for his signature.
"I have enjoyed my time at Trent Bridge and with England enormously, but I'm a Yorkshire lad and the opportunity to return to Headingley to end my career was something I couldn't ignore," said Sidebottom.
"The Yorkshire side has some real quality and under Martyn Moxon and Andrew Gale made real strides forward.
"I want to give the county everything I can over the next three years and if we can reward the Yorkshire public with a trophy or two that would be fantastic."
Director of cricket Moxon is excited to welcome back Sidebottom for a second spell at Headingley.
"I am delighted that Ryan has chosen Yorkshire ahead of many other interested counties," he said.
"I think that proves Ryan's Yorkshire pride in that he wants to return to Headingley Carnegie in 2011 and add his experience and talent to our bowling attack.
"He provides us with proven consistency and wicket-taking ability at county level and will provide Andrew Gale with a senior bowler of real quality to turn to next season."
