The Irish singer now has a place of his own

Niall Horan is set to move into close friend Marvin Humes‘ old bachelor pad.

Niall, 19, bought the £2.2 million property after JLS star Marvin put it up for sale so he could invest in a new home with wife Rochelle Humes.

‘After marrying Rochelle, Marvin‘s beloved pad was no longer needed,’ says a source.

‘So he put it on the market and it was quickly snapped up by Niall.’

Niall‘s One Direction band mates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson have already invested in properties, while Liam Payne was spotted house searching in London this summer.

Irish cutie Niall reckoned it was time for him to branch out as well.

‘He loves the place and was determined to get on the property ladder,’ the insider tells the Daily Mirror.

‘He hopes it’s the start of a proper housing portfolio – especially now he’s not short of a few bob.’
