Worcestershire batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore will join Yorkshire next season on an undisclosed-length deal.

The 22-year-old's two-year contract at New Road was due to expire at the end of the current campaign.

Kohler-Cadmore is not in Worcestershire's squad for their Division Two County Championship game at Sussex which starts on Friday.

Yorkshire said they would provide further details of the move once the deal had been finalised.

"Worcestershire County Cricket Club can confirm Tom Kohler-Cadmore communicated his position yesterday regarding his desire to leave the club at the end of the 2017 season," a Worcestershire statement said.

"Further discussions will take place between the player, his representative and the club over the next seven days."

Kohler-Cadmore, who came through the Yorkshire junior system prior to attending boarding school at Malvern College in Worcestershire, impressed the Tykes first hand in May.

He hit five sixes and 10 fours in his match-winning 118 against Yorkshire at New Road, part of a county List A record score of 342 on home soil against another first-class county.

His innings helped Worcestershire reach the One-Day Cup semi-finals - and a possible home tie against Yorkshire on 17 June, if the Tykes win their quarter-final against Surrey at Headingley four days earlier.

Kohler-Cadmore also caught the eye last May when he hit the fastest century of the season in 2016, a stunning 127 against Durham at New Road, breaking Graeme Hick's 12-year-old record T20 score for the county.

Worcestershire have won all four of their Championship matches this season, in which Kohler-Cadmore averages 48.40.
