Hampshire have completed the signing of batsman Will Smith on a two-year deal following his release from Durham.
Smith scored 786 runs in 16 matches as Durham won the LV= County Championship title this season, but the north-east side allowed him to leave in a bid to ease the wage bill.
Hampshire moved fast to secure the services of Smith, who passed 6,000 first-class runs in his final game for Paul Collingwood's men against Sussex last week.
"I'm delighted to sign with Hampshire and really excited by the opportunity to represent a club for whom I have the utmost respect," said Smith.
"The Royals possess an immensely gifted squad of cricketers, which I am over the moon to now be a part of and looking forward to the team pursuit of winning some silverware in 2014."
Hampshire manager Giles White said: "We are looking forward to welcoming Will and his family to the club. Alongside his batting and fielding he brings a wealth of experience, having played his part in a number of championship winning sides."
Young batsman Sean Terry, 22, has also been awarded a fresh two-year deal at the club.
