The Yorkshire County Cricket Club can confirm the signing of Sam Northeast from Hampshire on a short term loan deal.

Northeast will be available to play for the White Rose between 1 and 15 July, including the LV= Insurance County Championship matches against Northamptonshire and Lancashire, and Yorkshire Vikings’ Vitality Blast north group game versus Notts Outlaws at Trent Bridge.

The 31-year-old batsman will add valuable experience to the middle order, after averaging 38.57 in First Class and 28.51 in T20 cricket to date.

Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon said: “We are thrilled to be able to cover the players currently with England or injured with a batsman of Sam’s quality.

“Given the strength of our County Championship group, the next couple of fixtures could go a long way in determining the top two places, so Sam will give us valuable experience and batting depth. Sam will also be available for the Vitality Blast match when Mark Stoneman returns to Surrey.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Sam and working with him over the coming weeks.”
