Ed Sheeran has taken to Facebook this morning to tease a possible New Zealand tour.

The Shape of You singer posted a picture of his new album cover with the symbols of a kiwi and a kangaroo with the caption "news soon x."

Sheeran's fans quickly suggested the chart-topping pop star was hinting at a down under tour.

"Something in the South Island of NZ would be great...not holding my breath."

And "whoop whoop, Love that Ed can't tour without NZ on the itinerary and I that suits me just fine!!"

The 26-year-old has performed in New Zealand a few times, and he was here last year for a 'gap year' when he took a break from music.

Sheeran has always been fond of our country and has once said he wanted to become a citizen.

He played to a sold out show at Mount Smart Stadium the last time he toured here.
