Surrey have signed James Anyon, the Warwickshire fast bowler, on a one-month loan deal.
Anyon boosts Surrey's bowling following the news last week that Andre Nel will require surgery on his left elbow and will miss the remainder of the season. Anyon, 26, has played in 46 first-class matches since making his debut in 2003, taking 112 wickets with a personal best of 6 for 82.
He will make his Surrey debut tomorrow for the second XI against Yorkshire at Guildford.
"After losing Andre, we felt the need to increase our bowling stocks at such an important part of the season," said Gus Mackay, the Surrey managing director of cricket. "Having James will add some depth and experience to the attack which can only help us as we look to finish the season on a high."
