Chris Tremlett has committed his short-term future to Surrey after a signing a one-year deal following the loss of his ECB central contract.
Tremlett had an injury-hit 2012 season, with back and knee problems, which restricted him to a single Championship appearance. He has since undergone knee surgery and is now targeting a full return for Surrey's pre-season training.
"I've signed the new contract at the end of the season and I'm absolutely delighted to stay at Surrey for another year," he told Surrey TV. "We've got a big year ahead of us next year so I'm looking forward to that challenge. In the meantime it's all about working hard and getting my body in the best shape ready so I can hit the ground running for the new season."
Tremlett last played for England in the first Test against Pakistan, in Dubai, in January before being forced out of that trip with his back injury. When the latest round of central contracts were announced earlier this month his name was absent meaning he now goes back on Surrey's payroll. However, Tremlett does not see this as an end to his international career.
"I'm very keen to get back out there and almost start a new chapter in my career," he said. "I still feel as though I have a lot to offer at Surrey and hopefully again at England at some point."
