Adele is reportedly inking a new publishing deal which is said to be worth an estimated £10 million.

The 25-year-old's previous deal has expired and she is now reportedly negotiating a new contract that will earn her money from song writing royalties and will include an advance - which is estimated to be worth around £10 million.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''The figures being mentioned are huge. Publishing firms know anything Adele does will sell millions of copies and that the songwriting royalties will be huge.

''She's certain to get a big sum up front and more as she releases new material. Her next album should be out before the end of the year, the cash will start flowing in.''

Adele has been on a hiatus from music to enjoy motherhood after giving birth to her son Angelo James Konecki in 2012.
