South African left-arm seamer Dieter Klein was registered by Leicestershire during the 2016 season at which point he possessed an appealing 154 first-class wickets at 26, his deal extending until the end of 2017. Klein, who was playing for Lowerhouse in the Lancashire League, qualified as a non-overseas player by virtue of a German passport.
