DOM Bess will re-join Yorkshire on loan from Somerset for the first 10 matches of this season's Vitality Blast.

Bess, 21, spent a month with the White Rose earlier this season and played four County Championship matches.

He will return to Headingley for the majority of the group stage of this season's T20 competition.

Bess will be playing for Somerset against Yorkshire in the County Championship this weekend before linking up with his new teammates.

The spinner's month-long loan ends in time for him to play in Somerset's County Championship match at Warwickshire on August 18.

Bess told the Yorkshire website: “I’ve played a bit in red ball now but haven’t really established myself as a T20 cricketer.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for me to really put all the skills I’ve practiced into performances. Obviously, I’ve played a couple for the Lions and a bit more 50-over cricket for the Lions, so I’m really looking forward to it.

“I’ve bowled a lot around the T20 squads, I know the environment and I think it’s an amazing tournament. 

“I had some great fun when I was with the lads previously and I managed to forge a lot of good relationships.

"It will be nice and easy to get back into that environment again and get stuck into a great tournament. Hopefully, I will be able to enjoy the experience of a Roses clash if I get that crack, but I can’t wait.”

Somerset director of cricket Andy Hurry said: “We have seen already this year how the loan system can be extremely beneficial for us.

"Dom Bess and Jamie Overton spent some time away from Taunton and they’ve come back into the fold with some good yardage in their legs, which has been the perfect preparation for getting them back in to the First XI.

"We are reaping the rewards of that now because both players have been exceptional for us since their return.

“This agreement with Yorkshire will provide us with the opportunity to see how Dom performs in this format within the intensity of the First XI arena.

“We wish him well and look forward to welcoming him back in time for our next Championship match.”

Yorkshire head coach Andrew Gale has previously said the club would "try everything" to sign Bess full-time.

Speaking earlier this week following an important 51 against Nottinghamshire in Taunton, Bess said: "I have another year after this season left here.

“I love this club and I came up through the academy here.

“I have to try and play every game here and see what happens.”
