Carter says no to county contract; CRICKET.

WARWICKSHIRE plan urgent contract talks with Neil Carter this week after the left-arm seamer rejected the county's initial offer of a new two-year deal.

Warwickshire made their offer last month after they received a formal approach from Northamptonshire to speak to Carter who is out-of-contract at the end of the season.

Another four counties, including Middlesex, are monitoring Carter's contract talks with interest and Warwickshire are now expected to come up with an improved financial deal in an attempt to persuade the 30-year- old English-qualified South Africa to commit himself to a sixth season at Edgbaston.

Warwickshire hesitated over offering Carter a new contract 12 months ago after they indicated that he was free to talk to other counties. They only offered him a new one-year deal after they failed to lure Jon Lewis from Gloucestershire.

Carter has responded with a series of consistent performances this season - 75 wickets in all comeptitions - which won him his county cap in July.

Warwickshire officials are due to hold further talks with Carter next Wednesday when they are expected to offer improved financial terms in his new two-year deal.
