Kent will have a new pace bowler in their squad when they take on Yorkshire this week.
Right-arm fast bowler Matt Quinn has joined the county on loan from Essex.
Quinn will be available for the County Championship game at Yorkshire, which starts on Thursday, and for three more matches after that, having agreed a four-game deal.
Kent’s director of cricket, Paul Downton, said: “We’re delighted that Matt has agreed to join us on loan.
“We have suffered an unusual amount of injuries this season and Matt will be a valuable short-term addition to our bowling attack.”
Quinn, who has taken 123 wickets in 36 first class matches, said: “I’m pleased to have the opportunity to be playing more regular first-class cricket, and I’m determined to make positive contributions for Kent during my time here.”
Kent have yet to register a win this season and sit bottom of their group after four matches.
