Langeveld to Rabobank?

21 year-old Dutch rider Sebastian Langeveld will sign a two year contract with the Rabobank team, according to reports in the Dutch press. Currently riding for the Skil-Shimano team, Langeveld won the Dutch U23 championships last year, resulting in a pro contract. This year, he won the GP Pino Cerami, and there have been several ProTour teams interested in him.

The deal doesn't appear to be done yet, however. "On the 9th or 10th of June, I have an appointment with Sebastian and his agent," said Skil-Shimano manager Arend Scheppink to AD. "He has a two year contract. According to me, it would not be smart to leave now. And the fact that other teams really want him, I don't find strange."
