Former South Africa left-arm spinner Nicky Boje has agreed to a two-year deal with Northamptonshire after a successful spell with the county last season.

"I really enjoyed my time at the club last summer and found some form in all aspects of the game," Boje said. "I was easily persuaded to make the move on a longer term basis and look forward to being a part of a very strong squad in 2008"

"The experience that Nicky brings to the dressing room along with consistent match winning capability as an allrounder in all forms of the game makes him a very valuable asset," David Capel, the coach, said. "He has a depth of cricket knowledge which our talented young players should learn from".

Boje, who retired from international cricket at the end of 2006, will be registered as a Kolpak player.
