Liam Gallagher has claimed he was unaware of Wembley Stadium being reserved for a potential Oasis reunion with his estranged brother Noel. The Mirror reported that the venue had been booked for three major comeback concerts this July, before negotiations allegedly fell through.

An insider informed the newspaper: "Until now, no one has known how close Liam and Noel came to making it a reality. It doesn't get much closer than booking Wembley, and their teams were devastated when it all collapsed yet again."

"But the fact they made it to that point shows there's a will on both sides. The hope is it will be a case of not if, but when." Get the best user experience with WalesOnline’s Premium app on Apple or Android.

However, the 51 year old lead singer of the 'Wonderwall' band - who has been at odds with his 57 year old brother, the group's former guitarist and main songwriter, since a backstage altercation between the quarrelling duo at their last concert in Paris in 2009 - insists this is the first he's heard about Wembley being booked.

He replied to a fan on X: "Nobody's told me, maybe [they're] getting a new singer like the dude out of Queen (Adam Lambert)."

Liam recently suggested Noel is "still playing hard to get" regarding an Oasis reunion. Before performing B-side 'Half The World Away' - which was originally sung by his 57 year old brother Noel - at his gig in Cardiff, he dedicated the song to his sibling rival.

He joked: "So I'm gonna dedicate this next tune to my little brother, who's still playing hard to get."

"But that's alright. Word on the street is he was spotted in a really posh chocolate shop one of them Thorntons buying some chocolates."

"So you never know! D'you know what I mean? ".

Earlier this year, the 'Supersonic' singer joked that Noel should "send him a box of chocolates" to apologise for the Oasis split. Speaking to the Sunday Times newspaper, he teased: "I can see him looking back, not looking back in anger, and going, 'Do you know what? I was really mean to my little brother. Now it is time for me to send him a box of chocolates.'".

Last year, Liam claimed he had approached Noel about being involved in his 'Definitely Maybe' anniversary tour across the UK and Ireland. He wrote on X, formerly Twitter, back in October: "He's been asked and he's refused."

Oasis are also releasing the reissue 'Definitely Maybe (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)'. Set for release on August 30 - the date the landmark LP dropped in 1994 - the new formats boast tracks from abandoned from the original recording session at Monnow Valley Studios, as well as outtakes recorded at Sawmills Studios in Cornwall, newly mixed for the first time by Noel with Callum Marinho.
