Symonds must make decision soon
Said Newell: "Symonds was a name that immediately came to mind when the New Zealand tour party was announced.
"He?s a proven performer on the county circuit and would be an ideal replacement for Fleming in the middle order. We?ve made him an offer and are waiting for a response from him by this weekend."
Fleming will be away from Nottingham for almost seven weeks and misses five Championship games and two totesport League matches in August.
His last match before he joins the New Zealand will be in the totesport League against Northamptonshire Steelbacks at Trent Bridge on Sunday July 24, and he will return for the Division One clash at home against Gloucestershire Gladiators on Friday September 9.
