Pretoria - Former Proteas batsman Martin van Jaarsveld has signed for Glamorgan to play in the Friends Life T20. The move sees him return to county cricket after deciding to cancel his deal with Leicestershire in November to return to South Africa.

According to the Cricinfo website, Van Jaarsveld is a British passport holder so Glamorgan could still recruit a second overseas player for the T20.

Van Jaarsveld, 37, played for seven years at Kent, scoring 3 546 List A runs and 1 585 T20 runs. He was released at the end of the 2011 season and had agreed to join Leicestershire before his U-turn.

His decision to return to England was inspired by his successful season with the Titans, who are coached by former Glamorgan director of cricket Matthew Maynard.

Van Jaarsveld scored 316 at an average of 28.72 to help the Titans to the T20 title. "This has re-ignited my passion in the game," Van Jaarsveld said.
