Duffy had already announced his resignation from his position at Orange last month after his failure to capture the role of chief executive, and is now reported to be in talks with NTL over the COO job.
The move follows the appointment of former COO of NTL, Stephen Carter, to the position of chief executive of UK communications regulator Ofcom.
The Financial Times has said that no immediate announcement is expected over Duffy’s appointment but that he is thought to be the sole candidate being considered for the position.
