Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell says Australian David Hussey would like to end his playing days with the club.
Hussey's IPL and international commitments ruled out his returning to Trent Bridge again this season.
But Newell said: "I'm sure Huss has not played his last game for Notts and he certainly intends bowing out with us.
"If his international career ends this year, which he believes it could do, he would like to have a swansong here."
Notts have turned to his compatriot Adam Voges for a
four-month stint from May
as the club's overseas players for the upcoming campaign.
Hussey, who first came to Notts in 2004, has scored 5,834 first-class runs for the club at an average of 64.82, and hit 1,803 runs in one-day competitions and 1,624 in Twenty20.
