Will Fraine is excited about the prospect of playing for Nottinghamshire after signing a deal with the Outlaws for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old batsman is expected to play a part in the county's Royal London One-Day Cup title defence which gets underway at Lancashire on Thursday. Notts are 4/5 to beat the Red Rose county and 5/1 to win the Royal London One-Day Cup.

The Huddersfield-born player will also be available for the Vitality Blast and County Championship.

He said: "I'm absolutely ecstatic to sign. It feels like a great honour and I am really excited to have been handed the chance to show what I can do.

"It's been a whirlwind few weeks. Peter Moores (head coach) and Ant Botha (assistant coach) chatted to me after playing for the seconds on Monday and asked me to train with the firsts.

"The training session went well and the lads were great with me. To think that I am travelling up to Old Trafford to maybe play on Thursday is incredible and to now call Trent Bridge my home ground is fantastic."
