Jonathan Batty, the 35-year old Surrey wicketkeeper, has been signed by Gloucestershire on a three-year contract.

"It is an exciting opportunity to take on a new challenge," Batty said. "I am looking forward to joining up with John Bracewell, Jack Russell and the Gloucestershire team."

Director of cricket John Bracewell said: "We are delighted that Jonathan has signed for us and I have no doubt that he is the missing link between the first and second division. His ability to bat anywhere from one to seven gives our batting great flexibility for all competitions."

Gloucestershire had released their wicketkeeper-batsman Steve Adshead earlier in the week.
