The 22-year-old singer, who quit the boy band earlier this year, is keen on forging out a career as a solo singer and has no plans to return to the band, reported Hollywood Life.
“Zayn wants to go solo, so he can try and fly under the radar and not have the pressures of being in the world’s biggest pop group,” a source said. “Zayn won’t return to One Direction, and certainly not before he can prove to himself and the doubters that he can forge a successful career on his own.”
Rumours began circulating that the star was returning to the band when his Twitter biography was allegedly restored to the band’s official website. The change sparked rumours among the band’s huge fan following with “#zayniscomingback” soon trending on Twitter worldwide.
