Harry Dearden has signed a one-year contract extension at Leicestershire.

The 21-year-old left-hander becomes the latest player to commit his future to the club in recent weeks, following Mohammad Abbas and Neil Dexter.

Head coach Paul Nixon said: "We look forward to Harry continuing his development with us."

Dearden made his first-class debut in 2016 and is approaching 1,000 runs in all formats for the club, as well as offering a handy off-spin option.
