The chances of Graeme White returning to Northamptonshire on loan at any time during the rest of the season are very slim.

So says chief executive David Smith after the left-armer played for Nottinghamshire in their Friends Life t20 defeat of Yorkshire at the weekend.

White spent a short spell at the County Ground, playing the opening three Twenty20 games as well as well as the County Championship clash with Lancashire at Old Trafford.

But he was recalled by his parent club after Riki Wessels broke a finger and that means his time with the County will not be extended.

Smith said: “Nottinghamshire were very good to us by letting Graeme come here but any furhter deal is off at the moment.

“Now he’s played for them in the Twenty20 he can’t play for us in the same competition, Notts are in the same YB40 group as us and with the dry weather they’re likely to need two spinners for their Championship cricket.

“He did a good job for us and he was keen to stay for longer but he is employed by Notts and if he is to come back, it’s something to look at in the future.”
