One Direction's Horan finds his inner Quinn at Sunderland

One Direction member Niall Horan was getting ready for Wednesday night's concert at the home of Premier League club Sunderland.

The London-based pop boy band will take to the makeshift stage at the Stadium of Light as part of their 'Where We Are' tour which inspired Horan to don a Black Cats kit and release his inner Niall Quinn in front of the north stand.

Sunderland posted the following picture on Twitter:

This is not the first time a '1D' member has been kitted up on a football pitch as Louis Tomlinson took part in a charity match at Celtic last year as well as playing in the reserves for Doncaster Rovers in the second half of the season.

Horan will also head the names at his charity football match at Leicester City's King Power Stadium on Monday, May 26 which will also feature former football star's Robbie Fowler, Matt Le Tissier, Jimmy Bullard and Robert Pires.

Former England cricketers Michael Vaughan and Andrew Flintoff, comedians John Bishop and James Corden, singers Rod Stewart and Ronan Keating and TV host Piers Morgan will also be involved.
