Pop star Robbie Williams has become a shareholder in Port Vale Football Club.
The singer is a lifelong fan of the cash-strapped League One club and follows the fortunes of his beloved Port Vale despite living thousands of miles away in Los Angeles.
"Although I can't be at the Vale often enough, my investment is just to say that my heart is still there and I'm a huge supporter.
"I'm really excited about what we may be able to do with the club in the future," Williams said.
Port Vale chairman Bill Bratt said: "I'm extremely pleased and excited that Robbie has invested in the club. It shows that he cares about Port Vale FC and its future.
"It's now up to the board and all at Port Vale FC to ensure his investment is used wisely in helping to secure the future of the club."
Mr Bratt added: "Robbie has bought the remaining shares in the club and, while we will not go into detail about his investment, he has become a significant shareholder."
Williams, who grew up in Stoke-on-Trent, has previously admitted he would love to be a director of the club one day.
"My heart strings have definitely been pulled hearing about Port Vale's problems," he said in one interview.
"When I was younger I was in the Railway Paddock and I used to dream about sitting in the chairman's box."
At the beginning of this month, Port Vale had #260,000 worth of shares remaining and Williams is believed to have snapped up the majority of these.
Mr Bratt said: "Robbie has certainly put in enough for us to buy a new player."
