Following the successful negotiations, Chief Executive, Gavin Baldwin, said: “We are pleased to announce that former Doncaster Rovers owner John Ryan and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson have signed heads of terms to become the new owners of Doncaster Rovers, Doncaster RLFC and the Foundation.
“This takeover is a positive step for all involved with Club Doncaster and everyone involved is excited about the next chapter of the organisation.”
