London - England star Kevin Pietersen has committed his future to Surrey for as long as he remains an international player, it was confirmed on Thursday.

Pietersen is currently a centrally contracted player with England and has no fixed term for his county career at Surrey.

However, Surrey announced in a statement that Pietersen, 31, had pledged to remain with the county for the duration of his central contract with England, which is reviewed every 12 months.

"England batsman Kevin Pietersen has extended his contract with Surrey County Cricket Club until the end of his central contract with England," Surrey said in a statement.

Pietersen joined Surrey on loan in 2010 after a spell at Hampshire before agreeing a one-year deal for 2011.

"Surrey is a fantastic club and I have been really impressed with the environment and work ethic in place," Pietersen said.

"Their recent success is well deserved and I look forward to working with them in 2012."
