The Wanted - The Wanted up for One Direction collaboration?

The Wanted haven't ruled out a collaboration with One Direction.

The 'Walks Like Rihanna' hitmakers and the 'One Thing' singers have been locked in a war of words for months, but Nathan Sykes has hinted the groups could record a song together at some point in the future.

Speaking about the possibility of the boy bands working together, he told MTV News: ''You never know, you never know! I think with Backstreet Boys and New Kids [On The Block], that's really cool what they did, and there's been some great collaborations. You never know.''

The 20-year-old star also insisted The Wanted have moved on from their public rivalry with 1D members Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne.

He added: ''I think both ourselves and One Direction are, as far as I'm concerned, whatever kinds of words were said since I wasn't really part of it, think it kind of [went away], which is awesome.

''I think it's best people really concentrate on the success that we're both having and how well [we're doing], which is always great.''

Nathan - who, along with band mates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker, premiered new single 'We Own The Night' earlier this week - even complimented the 'Best Song Ever' hitmakers on their global success.

He said: ''I think ourselves and One Direction have done really well to make sure the music stands up on its own.

''And I think with boy bands it's very easy for people to say, 'Oh, they sell a lot of posters. Oh, the kids buy it because they like the look of the guys.'

''I think it's all down to the music and - it is down to the girls because they're amazing - but I think it also helps we've got really great songs and we're really lucky to work with such amazing writers.''
