England spinner Dom Bess will swap Somerset for Yorkshire next season, it was announced.

The 23-year-old, who had a loan spell at Headingley last year, has signed a four-year deal with his new county.

"The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to confirm that Dom Bess will join on a permanent deal from the 2021 season," said a statement.

Bess, who made his England debut against Pakistan in 2018, said he hoped the move would lead to a long international career.

"Hopefully the opportunities I can get at Yorkshire will develop my learning to kick on and play international cricket for a long time," he told yorkshireccc.com.

"That is the ultimate goal, but I also want to be part of a Yorkshire side that are again winning championships."

Bess has played 10 Tests for England, taking 19 wickets. He averages just under 28 runs with the bat.
