Josh Waters in contention for Tyco BSB seat?

UPDATE: Five hours after this story, the deal was officially announced.

Josh Waters is being lined up for the second Tyco Suzuki MCE British Superbike seat, alongside the newly announced John Hopkins.

Waters, who claimed his Australian Superbike titles on a Suzuki, finished a troubled rookie BSB season with Halsall Kawasaki - claiming a season best fourth in the Brands Hatch finale - after losing his Milwaukee Yamaha ride to Tommy Bridewell.

Tyco Suzuki finished third in the 2013 standings with another Australian, Josh Brookes, whose team-mate was young American PJ Jacobsen. Brookes is tipped to join Milwaukee Yamaha, whose lead rider James Ellison has switched to the new GBmoto Kawasaki project.

@bernyec The "more deserving brits" have been riding these tracks for how long and still cant do anything. Josh won two Australian superbike titles on the suzuki and he proved at brands how good he is when he was on the kwaka. Riding in the wet all comes down to riders ability and he proved that. With the help of hopper I think that josh can be a podium threat each round. When people say aussies work hard its so true. Bayliss never set the world on fire in his first season in BSB and he became a 3 time WSBK champ. Casey stoner struggled to show what he was capable of in his first years overseas and he is possibly the fastest rider ever. I could guarantee you that the likes of Shane Byrne and alex lowes wouldn't go to some aussie tracks and beat Wayne maxwell and josh waters on them tracks that he has been riding for years. all you brits do is whinge so I dont blame the team managers picking aussies. Its why you struggle to get motogp winners
