Northamptonshire have signed Durham seamer Luke Evans on loan for an initial one-month period.
Evans will travel to Northants on Wednesday and join up with the squad ahead of their four-day fixture against Gloucestershire which starts on Thursday.
Geoff Cook, the Durham coach, hopes Evans will be able to get an opportunity for first-class cricket, something unlikely in a Durham side packed with the most powerful pace attack in the country.
"Luke really impressed in our pre-season preparation and this is a great opportunity for him to play some first-class cricket and further develop his game. He has put in some excellent performances for our Second XI in previous seasons and his experience at Northants will undoubtedly be of real benefit."
Evans echoed this sentiment and hopes that regular cricket will leave him in good stead for when an opportunity arises at Durham. "I'm really excited to have the opportunity to play some first team cricket for Northants," he said.
"I've been in good form and I want to continue to progress and improve so that when an opportunity does arise at Durham I can grab it with both hands and have the experience to produce a first class contribution. The schedule for the next month is really intense and this will be a really good test for me."
