With his current deal at Team Sky set to end after the 2018 season, Geraint Thomas says he's open to listening to offers from other teams if they can provide him with more opportunities to lead at Grand Tours.

Speaking to BBC Sport Wales, Welshman Thomas indicated he is unlikely to line-up with Chris Froome in the first leg of his Grand Tour double attempt at the Giro d'Italia, and hopes to ride the Tour de France and potentially lead the Sky squad in Spain at the Vuelta a España.
