Doncaster Rovers have signed One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson.

Doncaster-born Tomlinson has been given a shirt number and will hopefully join the reserve team at some point this season.

He told the clubs website "This has always been a childhood dream for me."

The 21 year old has already played for the club in a charity game in aid of Bluebell Wood Hospice.

He added: "I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood."

Doncaster were promoted back to the Championship last season and start their league season at home to Blackpool on Saturday.
