    England batsman Alex Lees and Seamer Steve Patterson have signed new contracts with county champions Yorkshire.

    Lees, 21, who scored 971 Championship runs last season – has committed his long term future with the White Rose until 2019.

    While Patterson, 31, who claimed 36 County Championship wickets last season – has extended his contract, that will keep him at Headingley until December 2016.

    Lees is delighted to sign a new contract:

    The defending Champions are bidding to claim their 33rd Championship title this season, who have already secured the services of the explosive Australian all-rounder – Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch for this summer.

    Yorkshire will start their campaign against Worcestershire on 12 April.
