OUTGOING Pears all-rounder George Rhodes has joined Leicestershire on loan for the remainder of the 2019 season ahead of his permanent move to the East Midlands next summer.
Rhodes will be eligible to play Specsavers County Championship and second eleven cricket only for the Foxes and Worcestershire have the option to recall Rhodes for the final stages of the Blast if he is required.
Rhodes will leave Blackfinch New Road and join Leicestershire at the end of this season on a permanent basis on a three year contract.
This season the 25-year-old has played three Royal London One-Day Cup, three Championship and two Vitality Blast matches for Worcestershire.
Leicestershire CCC Head Coach Paul Nixon said: “It’s great news we are able to have George available to us in September around his Vitality Blast commitments at Blackfinch New Road.
“I’d like to thank everyone at Worcestershire CCC for their assistance with allowing George to link up with us early.”
