One Direction’s representative has shot down speculation Harry Styles is set to quit the band and go solo.

Rumors began to swirl that the 20-year-old was planning to break free and work on an independent record after he teamed up with Irish rockers Kodaline in the studio.

Frontman Steve Garrigan told Digitalspy.co.uk, “He just turned up to a show, and he likes our music. We had a bit of free time and so we went to the studio and wrote a song. It was good fun. (The track) could be on his album if he does something, but I don’t know. Nothing is set in stone.”

A publicist for the hugely successful act has now spoken out to deny Styles, arguably the group’s biggest star, is leaving.

The spokesperson says, “There are no plans for Harry to release any solo music at this time, any writing that he is doing is for potential One Direction songs. It’s common knowledge that the boys write separately and bring to each other for the album.”

Bandmate Niall Horan has written with McFly in the past, while Liam Payne was recently in the studio with Pharrell Williams.
