One Direction star Niall Horan has told fans that the group are now planning their new album following the departure of bandmate Zayn Malik.

Irish heartthrob Niall took to Twitter over the weekend to say that they had a meeting with their record label Syco to discuss their next release.

Niall told fans album prep was underway.

Niall tweeted: "Had a sit down last night with the label, started organising our writing sessions for the next album! F**k yeaaaahhhh! Can't wait!"

It's been a difficult week for the band as Zayn announced his decision to leave after five years.

Zayn, who found fame with the group after they came in third place on The X Factor in 2010, said he wanted to live life like a "normal 22-year-old".

One Direction last month: (l-r) Louis, Liam, Zayn, Harry and Niall.

The boys said they respected Zayn's decision, but Niall, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles told fans they would continue as a four-piece.

Band member Liam, who has already penned a lengthy message to fans following Zayn's "sad" exit, said on Twitter last night: "I can see a lot of people thanking us for staying, but you're the real heroes here, thanks for not thinking it's finished."
