If you thought that all One Direction spent their money on was ridiculous tattoos, new gaffs, joints in South America and nights out, here's another ridiculous one to add to the list as Louis Tomlinson has completed his takeover of football club Doncaster Rovers.
The One Direction singer bought his hometown soccer club together with former chairman John Ryan following a number of appearances as a player in the League One side's reserve team, which is a bit like getting your dad to coach the team so you'll get picked, just with £££s instead of nepotism. According to a spokesperson for Ryan the is 'done, the takeover is complete.' and more info is coming at an official press conference later today.
The 22-year-old was born and raised in the town in South Yorkshire and has been a life-long fan of the team, and has also played for the side during a fundraising match for the Bluebell Wood charity and against local rivals Barnsley F.C. in a reserve match. Luckily he didn't vomit on the pitch during that one.
Meanwhile, businessman Ryan - who ended his 15-year association with Doncaster Rovers F.C. in November - is expected to be more hands on than the One D boy, as the deal is said to have been delayed due to Louis' image rights, which are owned by his management team and would entitle them to a share of any money generated from the use of his image or name.
His team believe his ownership will increase interest in the club and are believed to have been battling for a share of any extra revenue made through merchandise and extra ticket sales. Which basically means that his face is probably going to be plastered over every piece of merchandise coming out of the club for the foreseeable.
