Derbyshire have signed Yorkshire left-arm spinner David Wainwright on a month-long loan deal that begins on 2nd July to cover for the absence of Tom Knight.

Knight is unavailable due to his call-up to the England Under-19 squad and Wainwright will be given opportunities to proves he is worth a place at Yorkshire along with the likes of Adil Rashid and Azeem Rafiq.

Wainwright, 26, has taken 77 first-class wickets - including two five-wicket hauls - in 33 matches and was awarded his county cap by Yorkshire in 2010.

"Although we are delighted with Tom Knight’s inclusion in the England Under 19’s squad, he was looking set to play an important role for us with the ball in all forms of the game.

"We are, therefore, delighted the opportunity to sign David has presented itself and I expect him to be integral for us during a crucial period of the season.

"Looking at David’s record and watching him bowl it is clear he has all the attributes to be a very effective cricketer.

"A month of first team cricket with Derbyshire will give him the opportunity to stake a claim. If he does that everyone will win from this loan deal."
