Pop star Louis Tomlinson will “sprinkle Doncaster Rovers with stardust”, according to John Ryan.
The pair’s takeover - which will see Ryan and One Direction star Tomlinson become co-chairmen - is set to be officially announced today.
And Ryan could barely contain his excitement when he spoke to the Free Press upon the deal being agreed on Tuesday, urging the Doncaster public to “come and enjoy the ride with us”.
“This will sprinkle some stardust on Doncaster Rovers,” said Ryan.
“Hopefully it will make the Doncaster public proud of their club.
“I’d urge the people of the town to get behind us.
“This is an incredible project that will generate some really exciting times.
“What I really want is the people of Doncaster to come and enjoy that ride with us.”
Issues holding up the pair’s takeover, including Tomlinson’s image rights, were resolved earlier this week.
Barring any last minute hitches, the deal was expected to be confirmed at a 3pm press conference in London today.
