London: New Zealand all-rounder Jesse Ryder has signed for Essex until the end of the season, the English county side announced on Tuesday.

"I'm thrilled to have been given the opportunity to represent Essex," Ryder, 29, said in a statement on the Essex website.

"This couldn't have come at a better time as I want to get as much cricket as possible over the New Zealand winter. It's an added bonus that there are a few guys I have played with before, the side looks very strong, and they have got off to a good start for the season."
