OASIS star Noel Gallagher is set to earn a staggering $21 million (GBP15 million) for the rights to his future songs.

The STOP CRYING YOUR HEART OUT hitmaker, 35, has had three offers from top record labels Sony, UNIVERSAL and WARNER CHAPPELL, who all want to sign up the songwriter to a six-year deal - the UK's largest ever.

The wild-boy of rock will also pick up another $49 (GBP35) every time one of his songs is played on the radio.

A source says, "There's no doubt Noel is one of the biggest writers in the UK by a substantial margin. There is a lot of interest at a very high level and with incredible figures.

"Like all these things, the deal could take months to finalise but Noel will end up adding a few more zeros to his bank balance."
