James Harris opts not to join Yorkshire
Yorkshire are looking at other bowling targets after missing out on James Harris.
Harris has joined Middlesex from Glamorgan despite interest from the White Rose county, who want competition for Ryan Sidebottom, Steve Patterson and Moin Ashraf.
It is thought Northamptonshire’s Jack Brooks is high on their list of priorities. Yorkshire were interested in him midway through 2011 before he signed a new deal containing a release clause.
Sajid Mahmood could be another option, having been released from Lancashire.
“Work is ongoing in terms of trying to make signings,” confirmed Yorkshire director of professional cricket Martyn Moxon.
“There’s nothing to report. We’re in discussions but nothing definite’s happened yet.”
Anthony McGrath’s future is also still to be decided. He will not fly out to South Africa next Tuesday for the Champions League T20, starting on October 9.
Overseas batsman David Miller is available for the first of Yorkshire’s two qualifying matches against Uva Next but he will not be available again until the last of four Group B games on October 22 should the county qualify.
The powerful left-hander, wanted by the Dolphins for four-day duty, would then be available for the semi-final and the final.
