Syahrin was handed his marching orders from Tech 3 earlier in the year to make was for Moto2 frontrunner Brad Binder, and has been working on a sealing a top seat in the intermediate class.

Linked to several outfits, including the SRT team, Syharin has now agreed a deal to join the Angel Nieto squad alongside Moto3 championship contender Aron Canet.

This will be an all-new line-up for the Nieto squad, with current rider Jake Dixon heading to SRT to partner Xavie Vierge, while Xavi Cardelus looks unlikely to remain on the Moto2 grid.

The Nieto team currently runs KTM chassis, but is yet to announce its chassis plans for 2020 with the Austrian manufacturer pulling out of the class at the end of the year to focus on MotoGP and Moto3.
