England batsman Keaton Jennings to leave Durham at end of season

England batsman and Durham one-day captain Keaton Jennings has turned down a new contract and will become the latest high-profile player to leave the county at the end of the season.

Jennings, 25, cited his continued international ambitions and the need to be playing in the first division of the Specsavers County Championship, meaning his widely anticipated switch to Nottinghamshire would rely on the latter confirming promotion this week.

Durham have already lost their Twenty20 captain Paul Coughlin to Trent Bridge, with record wicket-taker Graham Onions also moving on at the conclusion of the campaign, while Mark Stoneman and Scott Borthwick both departed for Surrey last summer.
