Champions' captain Adams set for move to Yorkshire
Friday 27 October 2006
Chris Adams could be set to join Yorkshire just a month after leading Sussex to the County Championship title. The 36-year-old batsman is believed to have been offered a long-term deal combining captaincy and managerial duties. Sussex have responded by offering their captain more money and a year's extension to his deal, which runs out next season.
"The ball is in his court. We've expressed a desire to bring him to Headingley," said Stewart Regan, Yorkshire's chief executive. "We have been in discussions with Chris about how he can develop as an individual. He's 36 and is looking at where he goes after his playing career finishes."
Adams has made no secret of his desire to move into a management role and was recently overlooked for the position of chief executive by Sussex. A statement from the club read: "We have made another offer for a year's extension taking him to the end of the 2008 season. We have also offered him an option to play on by negotiation.
"We are aware that he has a strong desire to move into cricket management in the future and at the moment it is unfortunate that Sussex does not have a vacancy in this area. Chris Adams is a huge part of our club's success and he is still contracted to play for us for another season, and we hope beyond."
