Carter has previously turned out for Lincolnshire and has an excellent track record in white ball cricket, helping Nottinghamshire to win the T20 Blast in 2020.
The 26-year-old off spinner was also part of the Trent Rockets side which won The Hundred competition last year.
Carter, who signed a new contract with Nottinghamshire last November, is only expected to turn out in white ball cricket for Cheshire.
He is looking to break into his first-class county’s four-day side and speaking in November said: “When it comes to Notts playing in the first division next year, I hope I can contribute to that at some stage as well. I want to play as much cricket, across all formats and to win as many games of cricket as possible.”
