Nottinghamshire have announced the signing of Durham all-rounder Paul Coughlin on a three-year contract.
Coughlin, 24, will join the Trent Bridge based County at the end of the 2017 season after rejecting a new contract at the Riverside.
“It was an extremely tough decision to leave Durham, but I am very excited about joining Nottinghamshire and playing at Trent Bridge,” said Coughlin.
“It is a fantastic opportunity to continue my development and I look forward to working with Peter Moores and his coaching staff.”
