London - New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson has agreed to return to Yorkshire for a third successive season, the English county champions announced on Wednesday.

Williamson, 24, helped Yorkshire to the County Championship title last year, but will probably be able to play in only their last three matches this year due to New Zealand's one-day tour of Zimbabwe and South Africa.

"I'm delighted to be returning to Yorkshire for my third spell," Williamson said in a statement on the Yorkshire website.

"I have enjoyed my time over the last couple of years, and to be given the opportunity to return to the club is great. There is a brilliant culture at Yorkshire and it is a real privilege to be part of it."

Williamson will join Australia internationals Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell and veteran Pakistan batsman Younus Khan as Yorkshire's overseas players for the 2015 season.
