Sussex have signed vastly experienced wicketkeeper-batter John Simpson.

The deal is described as “multi-year” and sees the 35-year-old left-hander end his 16-year association with Middlesex.

Sussex head coach Paul Farbrace has made it clear he wants to add experience to his squad ahead of the 2024 season.

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted John has chosen to join us at a vital time in our challenge to compete and be successful on the field.

“John will be a central point of our progression bringing huge experience, calmness, a high level of skill and leadership.

“We are all looking forward to John coming to Hove and being a big part of the exciting future.”
