One Direction star Louis Tomlinson's bid to buy Doncaster Rovers collapses

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson's bid to buy football club Doncaster Rovers has collapsed. 

The singer, who announced last month that he and business partner John Ryan (the club's former owner) had agreed a deal to buy the club, was due to become co-chairman. However the duo have failed the Football League's 'Fit And Proper Person's Test', which determines an individual's suitability to own a Football League club and cannot buy the club. 

Tomlinson had hoped to fund the deal with a two million pound crowdfunding campaign, which has so far raised just under £800,000, but has now been told the deal is now off.

Reacting on Twitter, he wrote:




Tomlinson then added that he had never intended to make a profit out of the club, but simply wanted to help out. 

One Direction released their third album Midnight Memories (which you can hear on the right-hand side of the page) and are currently in middle of a worldwide stadium tour.
