Surrey have further bolstered their bowling attack ahead of the new county season with the signing of West Indian Ravi Rampaul on a two-year deal.
The 31-year-old, who played 18 Tests, 92 one-day internationals and 23 Twenty20s for the Windies, follows young South African pacemen Conor McKerr and Mathew Pillans through the door at the Kia Oval in recent weeks.
Surrey director of cricket Alec Stewart said: “Ravi will add experience to our seam bowling attack and we look forward to him joining the squad.”
Surrey also confirmed that former England paceman Jade Dernbach is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a back problem.
A statement on the club’s website read: “Following a scan on his injured back earlier this week, Jade Dernbach is due to have more diagnostic testing in six weeks time.
“It is then hoped that he will return to cricket specific rehabilitation.”
