Initially, Bresnan will complete a loan deal to the Edgbaston based county, subject to ECB clearance. The loan move would allow Bresnan to compete in all matches across any format, except those against his former county. His move will be made permanent at the end of the summer.

I have still got a strong desire to continuing playing at the top level and to win, so hopefully, I can pass on a bit of my experience to the young players who are coming through.”
