He said: “I am delighted at being able to agree a new contract which enables me to remain at Old Trafford for the next three years. I have felt part of Lancashire ever since I first played here as a schoolboy and I want to help them achieve success.”I have enjoyed many highs with England over the years, but I have not had the same success with Lancashire and that is something I want to address,” The Sun quoted Flintoff, as saying.
