Singer Shayne Ward's contract is not being renewed by Syco Music
Syco Music has decided not to renew the 26-year-old’s record deal.
‘After five very successful years and an international career which saw him sell over 3.2 million records, Shayne‘s contract has come to an end,’ a spokesman tells The Sun.
Shayne – who was mentored by Louis Walsh on The X Factor – released his third album Obsession late last year, but it only got to No 15 in the charts.
His comeback single, a cover of Nickelback‘s Gotta Be Somebody, only made it to No 12.
Last week, it was reported that X Factor 2009 winner Joe McElderry was being dropped by Syco Music, too.
