Zayn Malik has reportedly splashed out over $10 million on a New York apartment following his split from Gigi Hadid.

The former One Direction singer had been living in the city with his girlfriend of over two years, but after announcing their split earlier this week, it has now been revealed the hunk has parted with an impressive amount of cash for a pad of his own.

According to The Sun newspaper, the 25-year-old musician has spent $10.69 million on a lavish bachelor pad in the Manhattan suburb of Soho.

The apartment boasts four bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as brick ceilings, exposed beams and steel-clad columns.

There's also a dining table big enough to host eight people, as well as an expansive living room lined with sofas, with mirrored walls to make the room look even more spacious.

Zayn is believed to have first expressed interest in the property last month, with a deal being finalised on March 13.

It comes just days after the 'Pillowtalk' hitmaker confirmed on social media that he and the 22-year-old model had called time on their romance.

He wrote on Twitter: "Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend. She has such an incredible soul. I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all. xZ (sic)"

Gigi took to her own social media channels shortly after to release her own statement, where she said she was "forever grateful" for the time they shared together.

She wrote in her own message: "Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years ... not only in the relationship, but in life in general. I'm forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for. As for the future, whatever's meant to be will always be. xG (sic)"
