Pakistan all-rounder Rana Naved-ul-Hasan has agreed to rejoin Sussex for the first half of the new season.
The 32-year-old has previously spent three seasons at the Sharks, playing for the club in 2006 and 2007 before returning in 2010 after a two-year stint at Yorkshire.
Rana took 20 wickets in five appearances on his return last season and cricket manager Mark Robinson is delighted to have secured him until the end of June.
"We're delighted that Rana is returning this summer as he was like a breath of fresh air when he was with us last year," Robinson said.
"The energy and match-winning threat he gives us will be an important ingredient for what hopefully will be a successful season."
