Northamptonshire have announced that Australia paceman Jackson Bird has agreed to join the club for the 2014 season.

The 26-year-old, who featured in the Ashes Test at Chester-le-Street in Durham during the summer, will be available for 10 County Championship matches and seven Twenty20 fixtures.

Chief Executive David Smith told the club's official website: "The signing of Bird alongside Maurice Chambers and Graeme White will see the completion of the clubs' recruitment policy for next season."

Bird suffered a suspected stress fracture of the back in the summer and has not played competitively since.
