London: Yorkshire chief executive Chris Hassell insisted on Monday that England fast bowler Darren Gough was all set to stay with his native county. Gough was reported as saying in Sunday's News of the World newspaper that he was thinking about quitting the county champions because of a whispering campaign among some members of the hierarchy who claimed he was not giving his all for the club in contrast to his efforts for England.

It's almost unbearable. It's been clear this year that certain members of the committee don't want me around at any price." But Hassell said Gough had the full support of everyone at Yorkshire's Headingley headquarters in Leeds and that he was convinced Gough would not be going anywhere else. "I'm very hopeful that he's going to be staying with us," Hassell told BBC Look North. "We have spoken to him to reassure him we want him to stay. It's been unhelpful but he's assured us he wants to stay and finish his career with Yorkshire. "All these abusive e-mails and letters that have come about over the year have been causing him some distress. But he's still highly regarded by everyone in the dressing room, the members and the academy of course as one of its original star members."
