Melvyn Betts has joined Middlesex from Warwickshire, where he spent three seasons and took 83 first-class wickets.
Betts, 28, started his career at Durham in 1993 and toured Zimbabwe and South Africa with England A in 1998-99.
"I am looking forward to performing well for Middlesex and I am very excited by the prospect of playing at Lord's," he said. "I feel I have a lot to offer and am just about reaching the peak of my career. Middlesex are a good, young side and I can't wait for next season to start."
