Cricket: England star to leave club

England seamer Ryan Sidebottom is to leave Nottinghamshire at the end of the current season after failing to agree a contract extension.

The club said the 32-year-old had been offered an "unconditional" two-year deal and a "performance-related" three-year deal which he did not sign.

"I wanted the security of a three-year deal," said Sidebottom.

He added: "I am disappointed to be leaving such a brilliant bunch of lads but there are exciting new challenges ahead."
