James Taylor has signed a three year deal to join Nottinghamshire.

Despite still having a year left on his contract at Leicestershire, the two counties have agreed a compensation fee for Taylor enabling him to head for Trent Bridge.

At just 21, Taylor has already represented the England one-day side and he has a bright future in the game. By moving to local rivals Nottinghamshire, Taylor will now experience division 1 cricket with a county who have been successful in recent times.

Nottinghamshire are a club with big ambition, and already this winter have signed Michael Lumb from Hampshire as well as Taylor to bolster their batting line-up.

In 63 first-class matches Taylor has scored 4,534 runs with a highest score of 237.

In 2010 Nottinghamshire won the county championship but their campaign fell away last year in finishing sixth. With the addition of players like James Taylor the Nottinghamshire faithful will be hoping for more success again in 2012.
