After all the negative headlines regarding the end of his international career, Kevin Pietersen admits that he cannot wait to play for Surrey.

Kevin Pietersen has insisted that he is excited at the prospect of turning out for Surrey on a more regular basis.

Ever since the end of the winter's Ashes tour of Australia, the 33-year-old has been at the centre of controversy regarding his international career, which the ECB decided to end for reasons that have not yet been made public.

However, speaking after a training session ahead of the new County Championship season, the batsman has revealed his "love" for playing for Surrey at The Oval.

"I've always loved playing at The Oval and I love playing for Surrey. The dressing room has a good bunch of guys. The management structure and the whole structure of the club interests me and excites me," he told the club's official website.
