The Yorkshire County Cricket Club can confirm that David Willey will leave Headingley at the end of the season to re-join former club Northamptonshire.

Willey, who moved to Headingley ahead of the 2016 season, has had an illustrious career with England to date and led Yorkshire Vikings to Vitality Blast quarter finals last summer.

Darren Gough, Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Interim Managing Director of Cricket said: “The Club was keen to keep Dave at Headingley, but unfortunately were unable to match Northants’ offer.

“We proactively engaged with Dave on his return from the IPL at the end of May, but were not able to make an offer until our new Board were in place. Since our first cricket strategy meeting with the new Board, we have begun negotiations on a number of contracts with players and look forward to making some exciting announcements in the coming weeks.

“Everyone at Yorkshire would like to thank Dave for his time at the Club and wish him all the very best for the future.”
