An insider told the publication:

"Niall is the band’s secret weapon — Modest and Syco believe he has what it takes to become a breakout solo star.

“He has the songwriting and music talent, good looks and cheeky Irish personality which made him a favourite in the States. A deal with Syco is going to be signed in the coming weeks and Niall is already back in the studio writing.

“There’s a hit single there too, which will probably be released early next year".
