The 31-year-old, who had two spells at Sussex last season, has played six one-day internationals and 20 Twenty20s for South Africa.

"I am very excited to be joining Sussex on a long-term deal," Wiese said in a Sussex press release.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my stint with the club last year and it made my decision so much easier when offered to return. Sussex is an extremely ambitious club and I look forward to being part of their future.

"I would like to thank Cricket South Africa for giving me the opportunity of fulfilling my lifelong dream of representing my country in the sport I love."

Sussex head coach Mark Davis said: "We are thrilled to have David joining us at Sussex Cricket.

"He is an extremely accomplished all-round cricketer who is effective in all formats and will bring great experience and skill to our group."
