Paul Collingwood has signed a new one-year deal to play for Durham next season.

Former England international Paul, who turns 40 next May, made his Durham debut against Northamptonshire in 1996.

This season he has played 32 games in all competitions, scoring 657 runs at an average of 32.85 in Division One.

Paul, who captained England to victory in the T20 World Cup in 2010, has played more than 250 Championship games for the club.

"I want to carry on playing as long as I possibly can while I am still enjoying it," Paul said.

"I'm absolutely delighted to have signed another contract and I want to carry on improving this wonderful club on the pitch.

“I have been lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic career, but I feel while I can still contribute effectively with bat and ball there is still plenty more to come.”

Head coach Jon Lewis added: "We can look forward to next year with him amongst us. It helps with the planning and it's good knowing we've got his input for at least another year."
