Danny van Poppel, winner of stage 12 of the Vuelta a España, will sign for Team Sky for 2016 according to a report in the Dutch press

Trek Factory Racing youngster Danny van Poppel will sign for Team Sky at the end of the season, according to Dutch press, as the British squad look to bolster their Classics lineup.

The 22-year-old has reportedly been courted by a number of teams, including LottoNL-Jumbo and Giant-Alpecin, but has instead chosen Sky as his next destination, per AD.nl.

Van Poppel joined Trek in 2014 from the folding Vacansoleil alongside brother Boy, who is also out of contract this year. Danny, the younger sibling, has enjoyed a strong 2015 season, culminating with a stage win at the Vuelta a España.
