Anderson extends Lancashire deal
James Anderson has signed a contract extension with Lancashire, the Red Rose county have confirmed.
The 31-year-old Burnley-born England bowler, who played a major role in the summer's Ashes success, has added one year to his existing deal, tying him to Old Trafford until 2015.
"I am always proud to wear the Lancashire shirt and I am delighted to extend my stay," Anderson told Lancashire's website.
"It was great to return to Emirates Old Trafford in the summer for the Investec Ashes Test match and use the great facilities after the ground's redevelopment."
Anderson made his Lancashire debut in 2002 and soon earned international honours, going on to emerge as one of the best pacemen in the world.
Lancashire cricket director Mike Watkinson said: "Jimmy has been an outstanding player and a great ambassador for the Club. It is great to see him play for us when his international duties allow him to and we are pleased that he has signed a new deal for Lancashire."
