Leicestershire have secured the services of Australian seamer Clint McKay for the 2015 season, the English country side announced on Thursday.

“We are absolutely thrilled to sign Clint,” said Leicestershire director of cricket Phil Whitticase.

“He will add a lot of experience and quality to the team. Clint has an excellent track record both at international and domestic level, and we look forward to him complementing and working alongside our young bowlers at the club.”

McKay, 31, has one Test appearance to his name and previously played for Yorkshire.

Leicestershire have long been destined to finish bottom of County Championship Division Two and are due to lose a significant number of players, including Josh Cobb, Nathan Buck and Shiv Thakor.
