British rockers Kasabian are being tipped as the unlikely new faces of Italian designer label Prada.

The CLUB FOOT fourpiece have been offered a global deal by the exclusive fashion house, despite their trademark, scruffy, retro style, reports British newspaper The Sun.

A friend of the band says, "There has been lots of talk about an advertising deal with Prada.

"But the lads are considering their next move very carefully before committing to anything. It's flattering to be asked.

"They do hang around with a lot of models and people from the fashion world - which is where the idea must have come from."

The group's guitarist Serge Pizzorno has already been offered a modelling contract with Models 1 agency.
