Jordan commits future to Sussex after signing new deal
Sussex have secured the services of Chris Jordan until the end of the 2016 season after the England bowler signed a new two-year contract extension today.
Jordan would have been out of contract at the end of the summer after arriving on an initial two-year deal following his release by Surrey last year.
The 25-year-old has been a revelation since moving to Hove prompting Sussex to act fast to keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.
Jordan said: “I really enjoyed my first season with Sussex and hopefully I can continue putting in solid performances and to help us be successful, especially with our strong start to the campaign.
“I want to be able to help Sussex have the best chance of winning trophies, and hopefully the new contract will give me the platform to push for further international honours across the next couple of seasons.”
Jordan took 59 Championship wickets in his debut season at Sussex as well as impressing with the bat and in the slips.
His form saw him break into the England ODI squad at the end of last season and impressed enough on the winter tour to Australia to be selected for the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh in March.
Jordan took six wickets in Sussex’s win at Edgbaston last week but his availability this summer could be further restricted if he forces his way into the England Test side.
Sussex coach Mark Robinson said: “CJ has had an incredible year and there is no reason why he can’t continue to take his career forwards.
“He hasn’t changed since the moment he walked in. He has been humble, honest, hardworking and as a cricketer, exciting to be around.
“We look forward to watching him develop over the next few years.”
