Sussex have signed all-rounder Chris Jordan on a two-year contract following his release from Surrey.

The 24-year-old was not offered a new deal by Surrey after five years at the club, during which he took 112 wickets in 72 appearances.

"I am delighted to be joining such a fantastic club," he said. "I had five enjoyable years at Surrey but felt it was time for a new challenge and chapter in my career.

"As soon as Sussex expressed an interest in me it became clear it would be an exceptional place to continue my cricketing development.

"Meeting with Mark Robinson and Mark Davis and looking around the club further confirmed that the set up at Sussex is perfectly suited to helping me achieve my career goals,"

Sussex professional cricket manager Robinson added: "Chris has got enormous potential. He can bowl genuinely quick and has the ability to be able to bat at six or seven, and is a natural athlete in the field.

"As yet, he hasn't been able to find the consistency needed to fulfil his potential. He is still young and we hope we can help Chris fulfil this rich promise and become not only a matchwinner at Sussex but also for England."
