Yorkshire have begun their preparations for a return to Division One of the County Championship with the acquisition of Jack Brooks.

The England Lions seamer has signed a three-year contract after agreeing to move from Northamptonshire, where he took 118 first-class wickets at an average of 28.95 over four seasons.

The 28-year-old said: "I'm absolutely elated to be joining Yorkshire who are one of the biggest clubs in the country.

"They've shown a lot of interest in me over the last couple of years and it was ultimately too difficult to turn down.

"I want to be part of a successful young side that has been built at Headingley. Yorkshire enjoyed great success in 2012 and will certainly be challenging again next summer."

Martyn Moxon, Yorkshire's director of cricket, added: "We are really pleased to have acquired Jack's services. He brings a great deal of quality to our existing seam attack."
