Will Jefferson, the opening batsman, has been released by Nottinghamshire after losing his first-team place.

Jefferson joined the county in 2007 from Essex and played role in Nottinghamshire's Championship promotion that season, but didn't make any first XI appearances since June this year.

"I am very sad that it has not worked out for me at Nottinghamshire but it has been an honour to represent the club over the past three seasons and I will always have happy memories of my time here," Jefferson said. "Due to a combination of injuries and a lack of consistency with the bat in the longer form of the game over an extended period of time, I feel it is time to move on and find a new lease of life somewhere else.

Director of cricket, Mick Newell, added he was surprised that the moved hadn't worked. "I always look to sign players who have performed consistently well against us and I genuinely thought that Will would kick on and do well here," he said. "I'm amazed that it hasn't worked out for him because he is a talented player and I have no doubt that he can continue playing first-class cricket."

In 22 first-class matches for Nottinghamshire, Jefferson made 939 runs at 26.82 with one hundred.
