England Lions seamer Jack Brooks is to leave Northamptonshire.
Brooks, 28, has risen through the ranks to put himself on the fringes of England's plans, taking 118 first-class wickets at under 29 each since making his first-class debut in 2009.
His county released a statement this afternoon, announcing Brooks has played his final match for them - and making it clear they wish him well in his future ambitions.
It read: "Northants Cricket can confirm that seam bowler Jack Brooks, who has a get-out clause in the final year of his current contract, will leave the club at the end of the season."
Brooks added: "I've taken this decision to leave Northants, because I want to compete at the highest level."
