One Direction want to write a hit song for a new pop act.

The boy band - made up of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson - have approached a number of acts after getting into songwriting, including girl band Neon Jungle.

The band's Amira McCarthy, 17, told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Liam Payne knew who we were and said he was listening to our song in the car. He said that he'd really like to write for us, so we're waiting for the song.''

American boy band 5 Seconds Of Summer - who supported One Direction on tour - have also been jamming with Niall and are said to be working on ideas for songs.

Member Calum Hood, 18, said: ''We found our common ground was Busted. So there's a few pop rock ideas kicking around already. We'd love to make it happen.''

The news come after Liam, 20, and Louis Tomlinson, 22, were named as One Direction's biggest earners after co-writing almost half of the songs on their album 'Midnight Memories', while Harry has also written a song with John Legend for US 'X Factor' duet Alex and Sierra.

Liam said: ''We're really enjoying the writing process and we've recorded some of the best material ever for the next album. It's a real step forward.''

Niall, 20, has also been learning new chords on his guitar having been taught by friends Ed Sheeran, 23, and Olly Murs, 29.

He said: ''I get the guitar out whenever I can. Writing music is really therapeutic.''
