Leicestershire wicketkeeper Paul Dixey has confirmed that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Dixey, 25, has asked to be released from his contract so he can pursue other career options.

Chief executive Mike Siddall said: "The club is grateful for the contribution he has made over the past couple of seasons and we wish him well."

The stumper, whose best first-class score is 103, has been beset by injuries since joining in 2011.
