Steven Davies, the 23-year-old wicketkeeper, has signed with Surrey on a three-year contract, having decided to leave Worcestershire at the end of the season.
Davies joins Surrey having decided not to renew his contract at New Road, where he accumulated a first-class average of 36.46, taking 207 catches in 73 games.
"Surrey are the biggest club in the country and I was very flattered when they made a move to sign me," said Davies. "With a developing squad that is already very strong, I am hugely excited about playing my part in the next era of Surrey cricket."
Guy Mackay, managing director at Surrey, said: "He is an exciting, young, international player and will play a massive role in bringing long term success to Surrey."
Davies made his international Twenty20 debut in March this year against West Indies at Port of Spain, and scored a fifty on his England Lions first-class debut earlier this season.
