Former England fast bowler Sajid Mahmood has signed for Essex.
The Bolton-born paceman was released by former employers Lancashire, his county side for a decade, in September.
The 30-year-old collected eight Test and 26 one-day caps for his country but last featueed in 2009.
Mahmood said: "I am delighted to be joining Essex. Playing at Lancashire was a great experience for me and I thank them for all they did for my cricket. I see this move as a new beginning and can't wait to get started.
