Manx Radio understands that talks between the Sky and Saxo Bank teams over Jonny Bellis are taking place.
Isle of Man cyclist Bellis is coming to the end of his first season with Saxo Bank - he has a two year deal with the Danish outfit, who are said to be reluctant to let him go.
But the new British Team Sky have targeted Bellis and negotiations between all parties are taking place.
Yesterday, Sky announced their first six riders which included fellow Manx rider Peter Kennaugh.
On Monday, Mark Cavendish confirmed he would stay with Columbia H.T.C. for the 2010 campaign.
