Saara Aalto has reportedly signed a five album record deal following The X Factor final.

Saara first announced news of her deal on Tuesday in Finland, saying: "I have this record deal with Sony Music UK and Sony Music Finland, together so we're going to make a very global album next year. I can't wait to get back to work next year."

Saara concluded: "It's going to be very exciting... YAY!"

Now The Sun newspaper reports that Saara's deal is in fact for a total of FIVE albums.

"I’m now working with some of the best songwriters in the world and Sia has written a song that has been given to me," Saara told the newspaper. "Oh my god, it’s just insane.

"I think Sia is a pretty good reference for me because her way of singing and the way she composes the melodies and writes the lyrics is very similar to what I’ve always done.

"I describe my own music as epic love pop. I don’t want to sing about going to a party with friends, I want to sing meaningful songs that can inspire people and I think Sia’s songs are really deep."

Saara added: “I think it hasn’t really sunk in yet, it’s too much, it’s too big.

“I’ll probably understand in January when we are ready to start work on the tracks.”

The runner up yesterday also revealed she was set to perform for fans at a massive gig in Finland next year.

"My first own arena concert ever!! At Hartwall Arena, Helsinki, on 15.4!" Saara declared in a Facebook post. "In My Wildest Dreams, definitely.. I never saw this coming so fast!!"

She said: "This is a thank you concert for all of you who supported me throughout the autumn! This is gonna be the best night!

"And to all of my fans outside Finland: this is a perfect opportunity for you to travel to Finland and visit Helsinki!! I welcome you all here with an open heart See you soon!"

Saara's own arena concert is in addition to her appearance on The X Factor live tour, which will take place in the Spring next year.

She'll be joined by Matt Terry, 5 After Midnight, Emily Middlemas, Honey G, Ryan Lawrie, Samantha Lavery and 4 Of Diamonds on the line up.
