London - English county Nottinghamshire announced on Wednesday that they have signed West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy for part of this year's domestic T20 Blast competition.

Sammy, who captained the West Indies to World Twenty20 glory in 2012, will play four matches in late May and early June, and could return later in the competition if Nottinghamshire reach the knockout stage.

"It's a gap between the IPL and the Caribbean Premier League where Darren was available and keen to play," said Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell.

"He's an explosive Twenty20 player, with a reputation around the world for being a good player and a good bloke. We're looking forward to welcoming him to the team and hope he can help us achieve a good season in the NatWest T20 Blast."

Sammy, 31, has previously played in the T20 Blast for Glamorgan.

"I'm looking forward to coming to England and experiencing T20 cricket with Nottinghamshire," he said.

"The Outlaws have a reputation for playing exciting cricket and have some hugely talented players. Trent Bridge is an excellent venue known worldwide, with great crowds, and I can't wait to get started."
