Rhodes makes move to Leicestershire
Leicestershire have taken George Rhodes on loan from Worcestershire ahead of his permanent move at the end of the campaign.
The 25-year-old had previously confirmed he would be signing for Leicestershire when the season concludes but he will have the opportunity to settle in over the next few weeks.
Rhodes won't be eligible to feature in the Vitality Blast for the Foxes but he can represent them in the County Championship.
Worcestershire do hold the right to recall Rhodes, who has agreed a three-year deal with Leicestershire from next term, for the final stages of the Blast.
Leicestershire head coach Paul Nixon said: "It is great news that we are able to have George available to us in September around his Vitality Blast commitments at Blackfinch New Road.
"I'd like to thank everyone at Worcestershire for their assistance with allowing George to link up with us early."
