Left-arm spinner James Logan has signed a new contract that will keep him at Kent until the end of the 2023 season.
The 23-year-old joined Kent on a two-month deal on the eve of the T20 Blast in June, taking 1-14 on an impressive debut against Hampshire.
He then took 1-4 against Middlesex before making his County Championship debut for Kent in the draw at Lancashire - most notable for Logan's dogged resistance for over an hour with the bat as he helped Jack Leaning salvage a draw at Old Trafford on day four.
Logan has also featured in the two One Day Cup matches in the past week, against Durham and Worcestershire.
"I’m extremely grateful to Kent for giving me a chance to play competitive first-team cricket, and to now sign a two-year deal here is fantastic," said Logan, who hails from Yorkshire.
"I’ve felt at home here since the day I arrived and I’m now looking forward to two more seasons as a Kent player.”
Kent director of cricket Paul Downton said: “James has settled in well since joining us on trial and really grabbed the opportunities presented to him across all formats.
"James has bowled with good control in pressure situations and shown an excellent temperament for a young spinner.
"We’re looking forward to helping him progress further as he continues to hone his craft as a Kent player."
