Dave Brailsford says Team Sky is the best place for 2018 Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas to continue his career, after Thomas said he would be "open to hearing other options" with his contract at Sky due to expire at the end of the season.

Thomas has been clear since his win in the Tour de France on Sunday that he would not immediately dismiss offers from other teams, which are likely to feature an increased salary offer after his overall victory.
