Louis Tomlinson is currently on a tour of the US with One Direction
Louis Tomlinson is set to follow in his One Direction band mate Harry Styles' footsteps by investing in his own place.
The 20-year-old singer is set to pay a massive £2.5 million for a 4-storey home in London which boasts 6 bedrooms, a swimming pool and a games room.
'Louis' purchase may seem extravagant but it's a safe investment,' says a source.
'The property is relatively new and given its location it is unlikely to lose value.'
It seems Louis made the decision to get on the property ladder after Harry, 18, moved out of the flat they currently share and into a £575,000 apartment in east London earlier this year.
But when Louis gets the keys to his plush pad, the other 1D boys - Zayn Malik, 19, and Liam Payne and Niall Horan, both 18 - may not get invited over straight away.
'He's got his head screwed on so he will keep it in good nick,' the source tells The Sun.
'Louis isn't the sort who'll throw a house party and let his friends wreck the place.'
