Surrey have signed Steven Cheetham, the Lancashire pace bowler, on loan for the remainder of the season to bolster their attack.

Cheetham, 22, hasn't made any first-team appearances for Lancashire this summer and has just one first-class and five one-day games under his belt. Surrey have drafted him in after an injury to Andre Nel so that cricket manager Chris Adams can continue to rotate his fast bowlers.

"Steven is a young bowler with terrific physical attributes, who bowls wicket to wicket and is very much at the start of his career," Adams said. "Due to one or two injuries we need some seam bowling cover for the end of the season and this loan represents a big opportunity for him to enhance his first-class experience."

Cheetham has gone straight into the Surrey squad for Wednesday's CB40 match against Glamorgan.
