Keen to take a selfie with One Direction when they come to SA? You might want to reconsider -- Louis Tomlinson is planning to charge fans R4 500 (£250) for a selfie with him. The One Direction star recently completed his takeover of Doncaster Rovers soccer club and in a bid to raise funds for the team he's offering his fans the chance to have their picture taken with him in return for a R4 500 (£250) pledge.

'This is a big step which I believe will open up opportunities'

The 22-year-old heartthrob - along with his business partner, former Doncaster Rovers chairman John Ryan - has launched a campaign on Crowdfunder and has set a R36 million (£2 million) target for the League One side.

The Tomlinson Ryan Trust have donated a six-figure sum to show their commitment and have so far raised R10 million (£553 617) for the South Yorkshire club by offering soccer and One Direction fans a number of incentives, including photos with Louis and thank-you videos from the star.

Louis - who is a lifelong fan of his hometown soccer club - said: "I want to see the Doncaster Rovers supporters get the club the success it deserves ... This is a big step which I believe will open up opportunities to provide a very, very exciting future for the club and its supporters."

However, fans will be left disappointed if the R36 million (£2 million) sum is not raised as pledge rewards will only be given out if the Trust reach their target.
