The left-arm spinner has made a huge impact during the current campaign and his new contract will begin next year.

It is good news for Northants in a week that has seen them lose bowler Olly Stone to Warwickshire.

And White says he is very happy to be staying at the County Ground for another couple of seasons at least.

“I’m delighted to have signed a new two year contract at Northamptonshire,” said the 29-year-old.

“We are building a strong squad in all forms of the game and striving for success in the future.

White has been in fine form of late, registering career best List A figures of 6-37 in the Royal London One-Day Cup victory against Lancashire before taking a hat-trick in the NatWest T20 Blast win against Birmingham Bears.

The academy product moved to Nottinghamshire in 2010, but returned to Northants on loan three years later and was offered a permanent deal.

He is now a key member of the side, and head coach David Ripley is delighted to be able to keep hold of him.

“Graeme has had a strong white ball season, continuing to improve in all of areas of the game,” Ripley said.

“He had a good winter away in Australia and has continued that form into the 2016 season.

“We are delighted that Graeme has agreed to stay for the next two years.”
