1D's LouisTomlinson's Doncaster Rovers 'takeover off'

One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson will not be taking over Doncaster Rovers, ITV News has learned.

Last month it was reported that the 22-year-old had completed a takeover deal of the League One club with his business partner cosmetic surgery magnate John Ryan.

But Ryan told ITV News that the "takeover was off" and that the duo had not passed the Football League's "fit and proper person's test".

Fans were asked to pledge money to the club in exchange for membership, branded clothes and collectors' items, with an aim to bump funds to £2million, but less than half the money was raised.

However, Ryan said the takeover was "not dependent on the crowdfunding project", adding that he was now "finished with football."

Coral was forced to close the market after punters took a "major gamble" late last night on the world's biggest boy band breaking up.

Before betting was suspended, the firm offered odds of even money on the five-piece calling it quits, while Styles was the 2/1 favourite to be the first member to leave.

The odds on any band member releasing solo material this year were 5/1.

A Coral spokesman said there was "no smoke without fire", adding "a rush of shrewd bets on One Direction splitting up raised the alarm and forced us to close betting until further notice".
