The A Team singer Ed Sheeran insists that he doesn't want to work with Justin Bieber.

The 21-year-old singer/songwriter, who has penned tracks for One Direction and Taylor Swift, has ruled out any plans to work with the celebrity Twitter king, Justin Bieber.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Sheeran said: ''I don't think a collaboration would work with Justin. I think collaborations should be done with people that can actually click. Two male singers makes it very difficult for it to work.''

Sheeran further explained that speculation about him teaming up with 'The Biebs' came after he met with the 18-year-old star's manager. He added: ''I met Bieber's manager Scooter Braun in New York and he said he's got this artist I want you to write with."
