Gloucestershire have confirmed the signing of all-rounder Kieran Noema-Barnett on a three-year contract.
The 27-year-old New Zealander plays for Central Districts in his homeland but has a British passport, so is not classed as an overseas player.
He is a one-day specialist, having played in 45 List A and 63 Twenty20 matches, and featured in Gloucestershire's second XI last month.
"He is a fine all-rounder in all forms," said boss John Bracewell.
"He will strengthen and support our developing group with his leadership experience."
Noema-Barnett added: "It's a very exciting time for myself and the club and I can't wait to get involved with the lads and contribute to the team."
