The band have been named as possible headliners for the rumoured T in the Park replacement next year.

Radiohead have reportedly agreed to headline a new three-day-festival at Glasgow Green in 2017.

According to the Daily Record, the outfit are set to play a new non-camping event, which is rumoured to replace T in the Park festival next year.

The outlet reports that a source close to the project told them: “Radiohead are the ultimate headliner for any festival. They’re one of the most exciting acts on the planet.”

Reports suggests the group will open the event on Friday 7 July 2017- though no confirmation has come from the band yet.

Last week, it was confirmed that T would "take a break" in 2017, due to difficulties with "Planning Permission".

In a statement on their official website, T in the Park said: "For over 23 years, T in the Park has been at the heart of Scotland’s music scene – with you, by our side. But for now, sadly, we need to take a break."

It continued: “The constraints – logistically and financially - that the resulting planning conditions put upon us are simply not workable."
