Leicestershire have re-signed Wayne White on a three-year deal after the all-rounder was released by Derbyshire.

The 29-year-old left the Foxes to join Lancashire in 2013 after four seasons with the county.

White took 17 Championship wickets in three games for Derbyshire this summer.

"Wayne is a player I know well after playing with him at Leicestershire. He will be an asset for us with bat and ball, and in the field," Leicestershire head coach Andrew McDonald said.external-link

"Wayne knows the set-up here and is a player who can do well in all three formats of the game, and we're excited to have him back at Grace Road," he added.

White has scored 2,582 first-class runs at an average of 23.90 in his career and taken 183 wickets with best figures of 6-25.

He will be available for bottom side Leicestershire's final five County Championship Division Two games of the season.
