Leicestershire have not been able to agree terms to sign former Pakistan international batsman Mohammad Yousuf.

The 37-year-old played 90 Test matches and 287 one-day internationals.

The talks failed over Yousuf's wish to take time off to fast in the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, while Leics have four championship matches.

Leicestershire are eager to strengthen their batting line-up following James Taylor's move to Nottinghamshire and Martin van Jaarsveld's retirement.
