However, the deal has fallen through because not enough money was raised through the Crowdfunder project to cover the takeover.
Tomlinson expressed his disappointment on Twitter and claims that he was "misled", as he believed that the takeover was not solely dependent on the Crowdfunder project.
The singer, whose hometown club is Doncaster, tweeted: "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 Crowdfunding . Unfortunately I was misled.
"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!
"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."
Tomlinson launched plans to raise £100,000 by charging supporters £250 to take their photo with him before Doncaster's matches next season.
