The pop star missed out on the band's last tour and album due to the birth of his son Charlton last year (14) but now he is hoping to be a part of their next reunion, according to U.K. newspaper The Sun.

Williams first left the British boyband in 1995 and launched a successful solo career. He rejoined them for their 2010 album Progress and subsequent tour in the U.K. and Europe in 2011, before leaving again - but this time on good terms.

Another Take That star, Jason Orange, quit the band in September last year (14), and editors at The Sun report frontman Gary Barlow is keen for Williams to return for their 25th anniversary in 2016 but Orange will not be coming back.
