Argos-Shimano will be known as Giant-Shimano in 2014, according to reports in the Netherlands.

The Dutch team lost Argos as a title sponsor at the end of 2013 and although a deal was reached with an American charity to take over, the agreement collapsed last month.

However, a report in the newspaper De Telegraaf said that Giant, which had already signed a "multi-year" contract to supply the team's bikes, has now filled the void.

The agreement is expected to be confirmed at the team's official presentation on Monday.
