Boycott 'key to Younis signing'
Younis Khan and Geoffrey Boycott
Khan joined Yorkshire on a one-year contract
Geoffrey Boycott has been praised by Yorkshire chief executive Stewart Regan for his role in bringing Pakistan batsman Younis Khan to Headingley.

Boycott, who scored more than 32,000 first-class runs for Yorkshire, joined the county's management board in March.

"Without Geoffrey's invaluable assistance we would not have been able to make the deal," Stewart told Yorkshire's official website.

"It was through his contacts I was able to get in touch with Younis."

Younis agreed a one-year contract with Yorkshire on Friday.

Stewart added: "Geoffrey provided us with a list of players - and the top batsman on the list was Younis Khan.

"A lot of people will be unaware of the contribution which Geoffrey has made towards securing Younis' services - the other members of the board and myself are extremely grateful to him."
