Cape Town - Former Proteas batsman Herschelle Gibbs has signed a deal with English club Durham for the upcoming domestic T20 competition.

According to the Cricinfo website, Gibbs will again link up in the Friends Life T20 with former England batsman Paul Collingwood after the pair played for Perth in Australia's Big Bash League.

Gibbs helped Perth reach the final of the Big Bash League and will be hoping to guide Durham further than their quarter-final defeat against Hampshire last season. He has scored 3 050 runs in T20 cricket and has previous experience in the Friends Life T20 with Glamorgan in 2008 and Yorkshire in 2010.

"Durham are really committed to their on-the-field development and have real ambitions to progress in T20," said Gibbs.

"There is some massive talent in the dressing room and I can't wait to see what we can achieve. I've been performing pretty well in the T20 format and I think I can offer some real variation to the side."
