Warwickshire are believed to have Worcestershire all-rounder Gareth Andrew on their list of possible recruits for next season.
Andrew has already served Worcestershire with 28 days notice of his intention to speak to other counties and will be free to do so at the conclusion of their Friends Life t20 group matches in mid-July.
Warwickshire’s director of cricket Ashley Giles has declined to comment on possible recruitment targets but it is understood that Andrew made an impression when he won a t20 match in the dark and rain at Edgbaston with a competition-best 65 last month.
Giles has declined to comment on which players he is interested in signing or those for which he has already issued 28-day notices.
But Warwickshire have eleven players out of contract at the end of the season and Giles is in the process of deciding which of them he intends offering new deals.
Slow left-armer Ant Botha faces an uncertain future and has already been given permission by Warwickshire to circulate his details to other counties.
In the meantime Warwickshire are considering their spin options with Lancashire’s veteran slow left-armer Gary Keedy believed to be a potential target.
Keedy, 36, has played for Lancashire since he joined them from his native Yorkshire in 1995. But Lancashire have two more talented – and younger – slow left-armers on their staff in Stephen Parry and Simon Kerrigan who they are afraid they will lose if they do not give them more regular first team exposure.
