Scotland World Cup seamer Dewald Nel has signed a two-year contract at Kent.
The 29-year-old South Africa-born bowler, who has also had a spell with Worcestershire, has played 28 times for Scotland in Twenty20 and one-day internationals.
Kent director of cricket Paul Farbrace said: "We are delighted to sign a bowler of Dewald's quality and experience. He is a credit to Cricket Scotland and the current coaching set-up. I am looking forward to Dewald making a telling contribution here at Kent."
Scotland head coach Peter Steindl added: "We are delighted that Dewald has earned a second chance to play county cricket, and believe that in the long run this will benefit Scotland.
"We have been impressed at the open and honest way Paul Farbrace and Kent have approached this deal, and will now look to build a mutually beneficial relationship which will help Dewald become a major player for Kent and Scotland."
