Singer Robbie Williams has bought a stake in League One football club Port Vale, in the Midlands.
Williams is a lifelong fan of the club
The pop star grew up in Stoke-on-Trent and has supported the club since he was a child.
"Although I can't be at the Vale often, my investment is just to say that my heart is still there and I'm a huge supporter," Williams said.
Port Vale chairman Bill Bratt said he welcomed the investment, the size of which has not been disclosed.
He confirmed that Williams has bought the remaining available shares in the club.
There was £260,000 worth of shares remaining at the beginning of February.
'Secure the future'
Mr Bratt said he was "extremely pleased and excited" about Williams' stake, which "clearly 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 at the club," said Mr Bratt.
Three years ago Williams turned down a chance to invest in the club, which had been suffering financial problems at the time.
"I'm really excited about what we may be able to do with the club in the future," he said in a statement on Monday.
Vale manager Martin Foyle added: "I've always known Robbie's heart is in the Vale - I'm delighted, but not surprised by what he has done."
