Sussex are keen to hang on to the services of England spinner James Tredwell.

Tredwell’s month loan spell from Kent came to an end on Tuesday following the comprehensive innings and 85 run victory over Northamptonshire at Hove which lifted Sussex clear of the relegation zone.

Tredwell is due to return to Hove tomorrow to play for Kent against Sussex in the NatWest T20 Blast when his future will be discussed but coach Mark Robinson has made it clear he is keen for the arrangement to continue.

Robinson said: “From our point of view it seems to be suiting both parties. If Kent get injuries or feel the need to bring him back that is their right so we just need to speak to them and see if they are happy for it to go on.

“We hope they will be because he gives us a bit of stability. You know you are in safe hands when he is on the pitch. You know what you are going to get with him.”

Tredwell has only taken five wickets in the three Championship games he has played for Sussex but is averaging 47.33 with the bat and has claimed seven catches.

Sussex are due to play Warwickshire next in the Championship at Horsham on July 21 and Tredwell has hinted he would like to be involved.

Tredwell said: “If I am not going to be playing at Kent then I want to be playing cricket somewhere so who knows? If Sussex are keen to have me, I have enjoyed my time so wouldn’t mind it continuing.

“It was great to get a result against Northants. The last couple of games have not gone as well as I would have liked so to get a win was brilliant.”
