Big changes are on the horizon for Liam Payne.

The One Direction member recently announced he’s embarking on his own solo music career, choosing to sign with a label that will separate him from Simon Cowell’s label. Now it appears like this next chapter of his life will also involve a new management team.

Liam has officially signed with Doyen Global, which just happens to be the team behind David Beckham. A tweet was shared early this morning, revealing that the singer has joined their music division.

Since the news broke, fans have also gotten #ProudofLiam trending on Twitter too! Directioners have been sharing tweets of support for Liam, and how he’s inspired all of them since his X-Factor audition six years ago.

We’re so excited for Liam. We can’t wait to see what’s next for him both musically and professionally.
