Essex seamer Tony Palladino has agreed to join Kent on a month's loan.

The 26-year-old has taken 105 first-class wickets at an average of 34.86, has previously played for Cambridge University, while he has represented Namibia in the summer.

However he is now relishing the chance to get some first-team cricket under his belt by moving to Canterbury.

Palladino told the Kent official site: "I am really pleased to be joining Kent as it gives me a chance to hopefully play some first-team cricket.

"I have been with Essex for 11 years, from youth team through to the first XI, but my chances have been limited this season.

"I am very much looking forward to pulling on a Kent shirt and I hope I can contribute to more success for the club."
