Hampshire announced today that they are holding talks with Neil Johnson about his return as the club's overseas player for 2002.
Johnson was a popular member of Hampshire's promotion squad this year and the only player to reach 1,000 first-class runs. Although his bowling was limited due to a shoulder injury, the club feel he made a valuable contribution.
The former Zimbabwean international returns today (Tuesday) to Cape Town where he will be playing for Western Province.
Tim Tremlett, Hampshire's Director of Cricket, said that an announcement will be made in about two weeks time.
