England seamer Stuart Meaker has signed a new three-year contract with Surrey.

Meaker's new deal ties him to the county until 2015 and comes at the end of a season in which he took more than 40 County Championship wickets for the second successive year.

The 23-year-old, rated one of the quickest bowlers in the country, has played two ODIs for England and has represented the second-string Lions.
