"Meanwhile, it is understood that Yorkshire have made an approach to sign Worcestershire batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who scored a 50-over century against them on Friday.

Kohler-Cadmore played under 15s cricket with Yorkshire alongside Leaning and Coad. His family still live in Hull, and he is out of contract at New Road this winter."
Oddly enough, over the last decade or so, players have been leaving Worcestershire in relegation years AND promotion years. It's often about money, though in some cases London seems to have been the attraction.

Just to add a footnote, there's another Yorkshire youngster now on the Worcester staff who came via the Malvern route. This is the Dewsbury-born slow left-armer Ben Twohig who has had some unspectacular outings with the second XI.
He had a brief moment of fame last winter when he was refused entry to Australia as a result of their much-vaunted immigration and borders policy. Chris Rushworth also tried to enter Australia with deficient paperwork last year and was banned from the country for three years. I wouldn't necessarily want to meet Rushworth in a dark alley in Stockton-on-Tees, but it's hard to see him as a threat to national security (at least when Mitchell Starc tried to enter the UK without a visa, he was allowed to go back and get one).

Well this has escalated a bit. Surely if Worcs aren't going to pick Kohler-Cadmore, there's a chance he'll be released from his contract and come here early.

Seems like a very stupid thing to do.

If you have a good and successful player for only a limited time I would think it would be best to get the most from him.

That Dobell article would suggest very strongly that KC is on his way for next season.
Could be a very good acquisition.

He might even be here earlier than next season if Worcs persist in not picking him - pointless continuing to pay him if that's the case.

This seems like a very childish act by Worcestershire. They didn't proceed that way with Kabir Ali, Solanki or Davies when they knew they were leaving at the end of the season. I wonder if they're now feeling vulnerable over the "poaching" strategy and sending out a message to the other younger players involved.

It is a childish act by Worcestershire. The only ones to suffer are themselves as they no longer have KC`s runs for the rest of this season, yet still have to pay his salary. A pointless gesture.

"The Yorkshire County Cricket Club can confirm that Tom Kohler-Cadmore has agreed to join the Club for the 2018 season and beyond. The Club will provide futher details once the deal is finalised."

Now that he's actually going to sign, I'll admit that I've checked Wisden and the name is, in fact, Köhler-Cadmore. You can get the umlaut on the O by holding down the Alt key and typing 148, though you have to have your numbers lock on. As the Germanists among you will be aware, the Köhler part means charcoal-burner.
Only a handful of Yorkshire players have had double-barrelled names (Chichester-Constable, Lister-Kay and Hannon-Dalby spring to mind), but he will surely be the first to have an umlaut in his name.
