Niall Horan will have an announcement for fans "soon" - Cowell
Simon Cowell has said that Niall Horan has some news to reveal.
The X Factor judge hinted that a solo deal is in the works for Niall, as the One Direction band members go their separate ways.
Cowell noted that Liam Payne was the first member not to sign a deal within Sony, the label that signed One Direction, and is now signed with rival company Universal Records.
“I worked with these guys for six years, so I always hoped they would all stay within what I call the Sony family, but I think only one won’t,” he told People on Tuesday.
“Niall is the most loyal,” he added of the Mullingar native.
“We are expecting to announce something some with him. I’ve always known he’s loyal.”
The 22-year-old has been focusing on a career in golf in recent months, and was announced as an ambassador of the Ryder Cup.
