Australian international Travis Head is itching to make his Sussex debut after landing in the country last week and has his sights set on Northants this Thursday.

And the frustrated left-handed batsman can't wait to get started having initially expected to join the county last season.

He said: "Fingers crossed in the next little bit I can get out, go through the process and then be ready for Northants, which is a massive game for the club.

"We have had some really good performances in the first four rounds and hopefully I will be able to contribute and start my journey here successfully."

Head also revealed his reasons for joining Sussex.

He said: "Well a lot of things attracted me. Brighton is a great place.

"Me and my partner lived here for the Ashes and travelled here for the A tour and she loved it as well. Obviously I have got a good connection with Salty (Phil Salt) and Rash (Rashid Khan) and have played against CJ (Chris Jordan) and Jof (Jofra Archer).

"I know a lot of familiar faces and have heard a lot of things and talking to the guys in the last little period has been a good one because we have got a really young team with a lot of potential."

Sussex have won just one of their opening four county matches in Group 3 and lost to Lancashire by five wickets last time out.

They are priced at 8/13 to bounce back against Northants (Draw No Bet), who are 13/10 for victory having also won just one of their opening four fixtures.
