As reported, Amir, 31, who took retirement from international cricket in 2020, is set to acquire his UK citizenship next year due to his marriage to a British national, Narjis Khan.
Leading to this, the English media has earlier reported that Amir would be signed as a local player.
Amir has represented Essex and Gloucestershire in the past.
And now the pacer is set for his return with Derbyshire after sealing the deal with the county club.
