Kevin Pietersen is set to hold talks with England captain Andrew Strauss next week as he seeks to salvage his international career.

It is understood the pair will meet following the conclusion of the third Test match at Lord's in the wake of text messages sent by Pietersen to members of the South African team during the second match of the series at Headingley.

Reports on Sunday morning allege that Pietersen described Strauss in offensive terms in one of the messages and offered advice to the South Africans on how to dismiss the skipper.

Pietersen's camp would not comment on the content of the texts.

Pietersen has apologised to England for the texts but has not divulged their specific content, and it is thought his international career will remain on hold until negotiations with the ECB are concluded.
