Belgians Sébastien Rosseler and Gert Steegmans are set to join Lance Armstrong's new team RadioShack, according to reports in several Belgian newspapers Wednesday.

According to Het Nieuwsblad, Rosseler, 28, will quit Quick Step at the end of the season to sign a two-year deal with RadioShack - which is set to be managed by current Astana team manager Johan Bruyneel.

Bruyneel, who has accumulated nine Tour de France victories as a team manager - seven of which with Armstrong - has a year left on his contract with Astana.

Steegmans, a Tour de France stage winner who recently parted company with Russian outfit Katusha, is set to sign a one-year deal with RadioShack, according to Gazet van Antwerpen.

Armstrong finished third overall at the Tour de France in July while racing for Astana on what was his first participation in the race since securing his seventh yellow jersey in 2005, after which he retired.
