Middlesex batsman Adam London has signed a new one-year contract.
The 24-year-old left-hander scored almost 800 runs for the club's second XI last season at an average of just under 40.
Managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said: "Despite a lack of first team opportunities Adam continues to impress the management team.
"We believe he has the game that will allow him to score runs in first-class cricket when opportunities come along."
He added: "The
retirement of Andrew Strauss
departure of Scott Newman
and Tom Scollay means that Adam is more likely to feature in the first eleven in 2013."
London has scored three half-centuries in his nine first-class appearances for Middlesex.
