Ed Sheeran has been named as one of the most in demand songwriters in the world and tipped to write songs for Rihanna, Beyonce and Justin Bieber by US star Taylor Swift.

Swift, who worked with Sheeran on her chart-topping 2012 album 'Red', revealed her belief that Sheeran could go on to become one of his generation's most successful and greatest songwriters.

Speaking to the Daily Star about Sheeran, who also wrote One Direction's current single 'Little Things', Swift said: "I think Ed is fast becoming the most in-demand songwriter in the world. It was a pleasure working with him. He has a real talent. Writing for One Direction has pretty much made him in demand from everybody."

She adds:

I know Justin Bieber loves his songs and I have heard Beyoncé and Rihanna want him to write for them as well. He's a talented performer, too, but in 20 years we could be looking back at him as one of the all-time great songwriters.

Sheeran and Swift worked together on the song 'Everything Has Changed', which features on her latest album 'Red'. The album has topped the charts in both the UK and the US, where it sold over copies.

Sheeran won two BRIT Awards earlier this year as well as performing at the closing ceremony of the Summer's Olympic Games. his debut album '+' was one of the biggest selling UK albums of 2011 and also revealed as the most illegally downloaded album in Britain too.
