An overseas player is still part of Kent County Cricket Club's plans, according to head coach Jimmy Adams

Kent remain interested in signing an overseas player this summer but new head coach Jimmy Adams would not be drawn on whether a signing would be made before the start of the season.

When asked if an overseas player is part of the club’s plans, Adams (pictured) said: "If the right person is there, most definitely.

"There is no taking away they bring a lot, not just in terms of runs they score but the example they set both in terms of preparation and on matchdays which is invaluable.

"We have a few young kids coming through the system and it would be great to have another role model to help their development."

Kent will start the season without all-rounder Azhar Mahmood due to his involvement in the Indian Premier League.

Adams said: "I take a philosophical view to the world game. Players are going to come and go so there is no point in losing sleep over it."
