England duo Chris Jordan and Phil Salt are leaving Sussex after they rejected new deals.

They will move on after next month’s Vitality Blast Finals Day.

Sussex say they “fully respect their decisions and understand their reasons for moving on to new clubs.”

Talks are said to have been amicable throughout.

Jordan admitted: “To be saying goodbye to everyone at Sussex has to be one of the toughest things I’ve had to do to date.

“In my time at the club I have realised my dream of playing international cricket and I have formed lifetime relationships.”

Salt admitted to mixed emotions over his departure and added: “I’d like to thank my team-mates, the entire coaching and backroom staff, the Sussex fans for their brilliant support, and all those who work so hard behind the scenes to make Hove the special place that it is.”
