Sussex have strongly denied media reports linking Mushtaq Ahmed with a move to Warwickshire at the end of the summer.

A terse statement from Sussex made clear that no formal approach had been made by Warwickshire and that "if an approach has been made directly to the player the club is unaware of this and the approach would therefore it would be deemed an illegal under the current ECB regulations".

With the number of overseas players allowed reduced to one per county from 2008, Sussex have to chose between, Mushtaq and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan. The county stated that they were in discussion with Mushtaq regarding his future.
