One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson's career in heading in a new direction.

The boy band star has signed up to play a game for English soccer club Doncaster, a team that plays in the second-tier League Championship.

The announcement was labeled ''breaking news'' by Britain's 24-hour sports news channel. He'll wear the No. 28 shirt on his hometown club's squad.

The 21-year-old Tomlinson says ''this has always been a childhood dream for me. I feel very honored to have been asked to sign for Rovers.''

But One Directioners shouldn't worry whether the group will perform as a quintet again. Tomlinson says he's not leaving the band and likely will play in a reserve-team game to raise money for charity.
