East Lancs will not be offering Brendan Nash a contract for 2011.
East Lancs Chairman Larry Pearson explained: "The West Indies host India and Pakistan during April, May and June next year which includes a total of six Test matches. As it is likely that he will be involved in both series it is not expected he would be available to the Club until mid June at the very earliest. We are therefore to look at other options very shortly."
Larry added: "Since my previous statement, Brendan has pointed out that he cannot confirm at present his international commitments over the next 12 months but has indicated that he could be available to a UK club from April next year. However, due to financial restraints the Club is precluded from offering him a realistic contract for 2011. We wish him well for the future."
