Keaton Jennings is on the verge of a transfer to Nottinghamshire, a continuation of the exodus of star names from Durham within the months since their monetary bail-out by the ECB and subsequent relegation.

Whereas the transfer is known to be depending on Nottinghamshire securing promotion again to Division One of many County Championship, that’s anticipated to be confirmed within the coming days. The county are at present second behind Worcestershire in Division Two, however with a snug cushion to third-placed Northamptonshire within the promotion locations.

The lack of Jennings, 25, Durham’s 50-over captain and a gap batsman whose type in 2016 earned him the primary of his six Check caps on the tour of India final winter, can be an additional body-blow to a membership who misplaced their different two first-choice top-three batsmen final season in Scott Borthwick and Mark Stoneman, who has since taken Jennings’ place alongside Alastair Cook dinner within the Check aspect.

On Tuesday, it was confirmed that Paul Coughlin, Durham’s T20 captain, can also be heading for Trent Bridge, having turned down a profitable contract extension to remain at Chester-le-Road. That call led Sir Ian Botham, Durham’s chairman, to issue a statement outlining his frustration on the behaviour of “rival counties” which “unsettle gamers with guarantees of First Division cricket, higher England alternatives and rapid monetary reward”.

That was extensively interpreted as a dig at Nottinghamshire’s director of cricket Mick Newell, who combines his county position with a job as an England selector.

Information that Jennings is to comply with Coughlin to Trent Bridge will unlikely to enhance Botham’s temper.
