Noel Gallagher says he is available to perform at Glastonbury next year, but wouldn't de drawn if he'd like to perform as Oasis again with his brother Liam

Noel Gallagher is up for performing at the Glastonbury festival next year.

The 47-year-old musician made the declaration in response to comments made by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl earlier this month, who said he would headline the festival's Pyramid Stage with his bandmates if Oasis reformed to top the bill as well.

Dave said: "If Prince does it, and Oasis does it, you've got the Foo Fighters, how about that?"

The Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds star has now said he would be available for Michael Eavis' iconic event - which will take place at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, from June 24-28 - but wouldn't be drawn on whether he wanted to reunite with his brother Liam for the festival.

Noel said: "I'm available that weekend - it's not up to me though, is it?"

The 'In The Heat Of The Moment' singer was also full of praise for Dave and his band, insisting they are among the loveliest guys in rock.

Noel told XFM Radio: "What they say about him is true. He is genuinely one of the nicest men in rock. We've done some big gigs with them down the years. Great lads, all of them."

Noel quit Oasis in 2009 following a huge backstage bust-up with Liam, which ended with the volatile singer trying to hit his sibling over the head with a guitar.

The pair didn't speak for years but the animosity has eased between them in recent months, with Noel admitting that they are on "good terms, well as good as we can be".

However, a reunion doesn't seem to be a possibility for the near future, with the guitarist previously saying: "It's not on the cards. From where I sit now it's purely a creative thing.

"I really, really enjoy where I am with my music and where I am with my band. I wouldn't be willing to give that up for anything."
