Out-of-favour Lancashire all-rounder Wayne White has joined Derbyshire on loan until the end of the season.
The 29-year-old will be available for Derbyshire final four LV= County Championship Division 2 games, although the side do not have any real promotion chances.
The Derby-born seamer appeared in 11 first-class matches between 2005 and 2008, and after a successful stint at Leicestershire, where he was part of the side which won the 2011 Friends Life t20, he joined the Red Rose in 2013.
However, White has found first-team opportunities limited thanks partly to injury and also due to the large range of fast-bowling options at the club.
Unfortunately for Falcons fans, the hard-hitting lower-order batsman will be unavailable for Tuesday's visit to Trent Bridge in the Royal London One-Day Cup Quarter-Final, having appeared for the beaten t20 Blast finalists in the Group Stage of the 50-over competition.
Elite Performance Director Graeme Welch said: “Wayne is a talented home-grown player who has gone away and proved himself in county cricket since coming through the ranks at Derbyshire.
“He now returns a more experienced and more complete cricketer and – as a Derbyshire lad through and through – he’ll certainly be giving it his all.
“This loan agreement gives Wayne the opportunity to showcase himself by turning in some impressive performances.”
