Rory Hamilton-Brown: statements of interest from a number of counties for the batsman

Former Surrey skipper Rory Hamilton-Brown has been given permission to speak to other clubs, team director Chris Adams has confirmed.

A number of counties have expressed an interest in the 25-year-old batsman, who is still under contract at the London club.

Somerset are thought to be leading the chase to sign the batsman, who took time out of cricket earlier this season following the death of his close friend and team-mate Tom Maynard.

A Surrey statement on Thursday said: "Surrey CCC can confirm they have received statements of interest from a number of counties with regards to the future of batsman Rory Hamilton-Brown."

Chris Adams, the Surrey team director, added: "Having had discussions with Rory, we have both agreed that he should be allowed permission to speak to other clubs so he can assess and consider the options for his future."

This is the second spell at The Oval for Hamilton-Brown, who was also released mid-contract in 2007 to allow him to move to Sussex.

He returned to Surrey in 2010 and was appointed the county's youngest captain in more than a century before he relinquished the captaincy in August.
