"Paul wishes to play first team cricket and appreciates his opportunities to do so at Middlesex are currently limited," read a club statement.
Weekes, who made his debut against the touring New Zealanders in 1990, has scored 10,736 first class and taken 300 wickets. A mainstay of Middlesex's lineup throughout the 1990s, his crab-like stance at the crease belies a left-hander who, while not the most elegant, can score quickly and enterprisingly. In 1996, against Somerset at Uxbridge, he became one of a select band of Middlesex players to have scored hundreds in both innings of a match (171* and 160).
He has often been shifted up and down the order, and used as a pinch-hitter in one-day cricket. Indeed, his nagging offspin has been most effective in the shorter game where his 324 wickets have cost 28.94 each.
