Franck Montagny has been named in connection with Renault's Formula One team for a 2010 appointment.

With the struggling French-Swiss rookie Romain Grosjean's new place not secure, the authoritative sports daily L'Equipe said Frenchman Montagny's name is being linked with the Enstone based team.

Contacted by 20minutes.fr, Montagny confirmed that talks are underway.

Last month Montagny, 31 and a former Renault and Toyota test driver who raced for part of 2006 with Super Aguri, was linked with the new start-up team USF1.

L'Equipe also mentioned Timo Glock, Adrian Sutil and Jarno Trulli in connection with Renault, who have already signed Robert Kubica to replace the Ferrari-bound Fernando Alonso.

Also named in media reports in connection with Renault is Bruno Senna, but it is believed the Brazilian is only in the frame for the 'young driver' test at Jerez in December.
