Louis Walsh 'Defiant' As Redfoo Linked To X Factor Job
Talent show stalwart claimed to be feeling secure about his seat on the panel...
A source said: "Louis is tight with Simon and isn't bothered about what Cheryl has been saying.
"He will be back as far as he's concerned — and he wants Sharon Osbourne at his side."
However the 61-year-old pop manager is also reported to be facing a new threat from former LMFAO star Redfoo.
Another source told The Sun: "Simon wanted to wait until Cheryl was 100 per cent confirmed first, so they could talk.
"Both of them like how edgy and cool Redfoo is. He makes great telly."
The afro-haired star has already worked for SiCo on Australia's version of the show.
