It’s been reported today that One Direction singer Niall Horan is to undergo surgery next week on his knee.

He’ll jet to the States for the operation, and it’s expected that he’ll stay in an exclusive clinic for ten days.

A source close to 1D said, “Niall has battled this problem since he was a child. His knee dislocates and it is very uncomfortable.”

To The Sun’s TV Biz, the insider added, “He’s had physio sessions for years but the pain persists so surgery is the best solution to have him fully fit and ready for the demands of a long tour.”

Last year, Niall spent weeks on crutches because of his knee, and at the time, he joked that a squirrel attack had damaged his leg.

But of the surgery, the paper adds, “He is in good hands for the surgery. SIMON COWELL’s record label Syco is to foot the bill for all travel and medical costs.”

Niall however has made no mention of the surgery on Twitter, and instead posted a cheery message to his fans last night which read, “Sup peoples ? Havin a good Christmas/new year break?”

He certainly seems to be enjoying his time off at home in Mullingar, and Twitter has been inundated with pictures of him out and about in the town, and in one or two, he looks slightly worse for wear!

But who can blame him for letting his hair down a bit? Quite aside from the hectic year he’s had, for a while there, it looked like he might not make it home for Christmas due to the bad weather and cancelled flights, so the sheer relief of getting to Mullingar in time for the festivities probably made the holiday that bit more special for him.

Here’s a look at a recent interview with everyone’s favourite Irish lad…
