English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff is set to continue his comeback to cricket in the Big Bash League with the Brisbane Heat.
According to The Telegraph, the 36-year-old is close to finalising a deal with the Heat for the upcoming season, which begins on December 18.
Flintoff came out of retirement to play Twenty20 for Lancashire in England and is now keen to test himself in the Australian summer.
In August, Flintoff outlined his desire to and said he was on the cusp of signing for Queensland in 2009 before injury intervened.
“If there’s an opportunity there, why not? It’s one of the things I’ve wanted to do,” he told BBC Radio in August.
“I was about to sign for Queensland in 2009 when I retired.”
Flintoff is not the only high profile ex-England test star to feature in the Big Bash this summer, with batsman Kevin Pietersen signing a deal with the Melbourne Stars.
