Worcestershire Rapids have secured the services of Mitchell Santner for this year's Twenty20 Blast event.
The all-rounder has made the move following his breakthrough into the New Zealand team in 2015.
"To have an overseas player with three strings to his bow will be a huge bonus to our T20 Blast ambitions," director of cricket Steve Rhodes told the club's official website.
"He presently plays all formats for New Zealand and bats in the top six. He is a genuine left-arm spinner so he will give our bowling terrific balance and his athletic fielding will add to an already good fielding squad."
The Rapids reached the quarter-finals of the competition last year.
