Durham's Paul Collingwood agrees to Derbyshire talks

Collingwood has a year left on his Durham contract

Durham all-rounder Paul Collingwood has said he wants to meet Derbyshire for talks over a potential move away from the Riverside.

Derbyshire are keen to sign the former England one-day skipper, who only has a year left on his contract with Durham.

Collingwood told BBC Newcastle: "I don't know any of the details of what they're going to offer.

"I've been brought up in the area and it would take lot for me to leave, but I have to go and see what they say."

Collingwood is England's most-capped player in one-day internationals (197) and Twenty20 internationals (35) and remains centrally contracted to with the ECB, although he has not played for his country since March.

Championship Division Two strugglers Derbyshire, who tabled a 28-day notice period to speak to Collingwood, have been promising a landmark signing under new chairman Chris Grant.

Collingwood continued: "Obviously I have a year remaining on my contract, but I will talk to them when the 28 days are up."

The all-rounder played a vital role in Durham's 97-run T20 win over Northants on Thursday, finishing with figures of 5-6 from three overs as Northants were skittled out for only 47 runs in reply to the home side's 144-7.
