League One: One Direction star Tomlinson completes Doncaster takeover

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, along with former chairman John Ryan, have completed a takeover of League One side Doncaster Rovers.

A spokesman for John Ryan told reporters that the deal had been completed and would be explained at a press conference in London on Thursday.

Louis Tomlinson is a global star in boy band One Direction and is a lifelong fan of his hometown club.

Earlier this year he played for the Doncaster reserve side against Barnsley and had been close to a takeover before, but  negotiations were delayed over image rights.

They have now been resolved and Ryan's spokesman told the Press Association: "It's done, the takeover is complete."
