Reports from The Times of United Kingdom claim the 26-year-old has been given clearance from the English Cricket Board (ECB) to play in the Ford Trophy, which gets underway on Sunday.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said the former worldwide was making a private trip to spend time with his family, but Canterbury have confirmed that they've entered into informal negotiations with the 26-year-old.

Christchurch-born Stokes, under police investigation in Britain, is on his way to New Zealand to visit family, raising speculation he could play in the domestic competition before joining the England Ashes squad.

Why is Stokes on his way to New Zealand?

They would probably give Stokes 24 hours to recover from his flight before trying to contact him, Curwin said. However, we understand he and his representatives have been in discussions with Canterbury.

But England officials say that's not the case and they're still awaiting a police decision on whether Stokes will be charged over the Bristol incident.

European Central Bank boss Andrew Strauss has stressed that he won't be able to play for England until he's been cleared by police for the incident which took place outside a Bristol nightclub in September.

The England ace remains under investigation after a brawl in Bristol in September.

Stokes moved to England with his parents as a 12-year-old after his New Zealand rugby league global father, Ged, took up a coaching job in Cumbria. "His travel arrangements have not been arranged by the European Central Bank".

If he's playing cricket, why can't he just play for England?

England missed Stokes' allround abilities as they went down by 10 wickets in the first Ashes Test in Brisbane with the second game of the series scheduled to start in Adelaide on Saturday.
