COUNTY CRICKET: ESSEX were last night closing in on a deal to sign Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh, the Thurrock Gazette understands.
The 31-year-old would be brought in to bolster the club’s bowling options in their flagging Championship division two campaign.
A source close to the club said a deal was “not a million miles away”.
Singh, who has been out of favour with the national selectors, has been playing with the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
