Surrey sign all-rounder Burke

Surrey have signed all-rounder James Burke from Somerset on a two-year deal.

Burke, 23, has struggled to break into the first-team at Taunton but did play in three of their NatWest T20 Blast fixtures this season, scoring four runs in his only innings and not getting a bowl.

He has been playing regularly for Somerset's Second XI as well as turning out for Devon and represented England at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 levels.

Director of Cricket Alec Stewart said: "James is a genuine all-rounder of great potential. We look forward to welcoming to him to the club."

Burke will link up with his new county at the end of the current season.
