Michael Hogan, the Western Australia fast bowler, will quit Australian cricket after one more season in order to take up a contract with Glamorgan which had been due to start later this year.
Hogan, 30, was due to link up with Glamorgan for the last two months of the 2012 English season but will now see out his Warriors contract before switching. Hogan holds a British passport so will not be classed as an overseas player, but regulations mean he has to stop playing Australian domestic cricket.
"He has recently announced that he will retire from playing cricket in Australia at the end of March 2013," a Glamorgan statement said. "He will then join up with his new team-mates ahead of the start of the new season and will play for Glamorgan for a minimum of two seasons."
Hogan has played 27 first-class matches and taken 100 wickets at 28.46 with a best of 6 for 70.
