Louis Tomlinson - Louis Tomlinson's Doncaster Rovers bid falls through

Louis Tomlinson's bid to buy Doncaster Rovers soccer club has fallen through.

The One Direction star was hoping to raise funds to purchase his hometown team but after his Crowdfunder campaign - which charged fans £250 for a selfie with the singer - fell short of its £2 million target, his bid has been axed and he claimed he ''was misled''.

He wrote on Twitter: ''I'm absolutely gutted the Doncaster Rovers deal is not going ahead. I am desperate for the club to be given the recognition it deserves :(

''I was explicitly told that the deal to buy the club was not dependent on the money raised by crowd-funding. Unfortunately I was misled.''

Louis - who played for Doncaster's reserve team as a 65th minute substitute in February - insisted he still wants to ''be involved'' and promised supporters he will do all he can to help.

He continued: ''My passion for Doncaster Rovers remains as strong as ever, and I hope that I can still be involved with the club moving forward!

''And to all the Doncaster Rovers fans, I will do all in my power to help the club succeed. I really do love the club! #roverstillidie

''For the record,I insisted contractually I would never earn a penny from DRFC. I simply wanted to help club& community.Still hoping I can (sic)''
