Heartthrob Louis completes his takeover of Doncaster Rovers , his dream team.

Tomlinson signed on as a Doncaster player at the start of the season in a move to make money for the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and turned out as a substitute in front of nearly 10,000 fans for the reserve team in February.

Negotiations over the takeover were protracted due to issues regarding Tomlinson’s 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.

Ryan, who ended his original 15-year association with Rovers last year, is likely to be the more actively involved with the administration of the club than Tomlinson.
The businessman oversaw Doncaster’s rise from non-league to the Championship, as well as their move from Belle Vue to the Keepmoat Stadium.

Tomlinson said: “For me, this is all about the football, the community and restoring the excitement and desire to making Doncaster Rovers the most exciting club to play for in Yorkshire”.
“This is a big step which I believe will open up opportunities to provide a very, very exciting future for the club and its supporters.”
