London: Glamorgan have confirmed that former Aussie paceman Jason Gillespie will join the club as their overseas player for the 2008 season.
“Jason is a proven performer at international level and he is just the sort of experienced bowler we were looking for to spearhead our attack," manager Maynard told the Welsh county's official website.
“He will also be an important influence on some of the developing players in the dressing room."
Gillespie said: "I'm really excited about heading to Cardiff and my family love the place too.
“I'm also aware of the massive changes the ground at Cardiff has undergone over the past year, which is really exciting.
Gillespie, who has played 71 Tests and 97 one-day internationals for Australia, has taken 259 wickets in Test cricket.
The 32-year-old also has three centuries to his name, including a highest score of 201 not out against Bangladesh.
