Australian paceman James Pattinson has signed a new three year deal with the Melbourne Renegades.

Pattinson has played for the Renegades for the past two seasons, collecting their Player of the year award last year.

"It’s going to be an exciting season for our fans with Gayle and Finchy in the top order,” Pattinson said.

“We have a good squad together with my Victorian teammate Cameron White also joining so we will definitely be looking at a finals position.

“From a personal point of view, I can’t wait to bowl alongside Sidds (Peter Siddle), Bravo, Rimmo (Nathan Rimmington), Nick Winter and X (Xavier Doherty).”
