Sussex have signed fast bowler Amjad Khan from Kent.

The 29-year-old, who played a solitary Test match and one-day international for England last year, has agreed a three-year contract.

Copenhagen-born Amjad is a replacement for Corey Collymore, who is leaving Sussex to join Middlesex.

Khan has taken 286 first-class wickets in 87 games but missed all of last season recovering from knee surgery.

This season he has taken 38 Championship wickets and is leading wicket-taker in a Kent side which has been fighting a first division relegation battle.

Kent agreed to release him earlier this month after deciding they could not afford to offer him a new contract.
