Paul Franks has signed a new contract with Nottinghamshire until the end of the 2013 season.

The 32-year-old Mansfield-born all-rounder, who made a solitary one-day international appearance for England in 2000, has played for Notts for the past 16 seasons and is keen to remain at Trent Bridge for the rest of his career.

"I set myself the challenge early on in my career to stay with Nottinghamshire until I retire and that is still my ambition," said Franks, who made his first class debut in 1996.

"My role has changed since then and now I have a responsibility to try and pass knowledge on to younger players but my desire to make a contribution to a successful side remains the same."

Franks has a first-class batting average of 27.78 and has taken 496 wickets at 32.58.
