Opening batsman Joe Denly has finalised a move to Middlesex after allowing his contract with Kent to expire.

Denly, who spent ten years with the Spitfires, admitted that it was hard to decision to leave his home county.

However, the 25-year-old is hoping that his switch to the Lord's-based club will help reignite his England career.

"A large part of me is very sad to be leaving Kent," said Denly. "As a local lad who’s come through the system I expected to play my whole career here.

"I’m committed to becoming the best player I can possibly be and firmly believe that the environment at Middlesex will help me achieve that and one day resurrect my prospects at international level.

"I’d like to thank everyone at Kent, particularly my captain Rob Key, for the support I’ve received over the last eight years."

Denly made his international debut in August 2009 against Ireland.
