Tomlinson is currently on tour in the USA with One Direction and admitted he may not get the chance to appear for the club until later in the year.
"Realistically, September/October time, we might be doing a reserve game," he added.
Rovers manager Paul Dickov joked that Tomlinson needed to get back to the UK to be ready for the new season but is confident his signing will be good for the club.
"He's missed pre-season trainng and he's having a holiday in America, so we'd better get him over here pretty soon," he said.
"It's great with Louis being a Doncaster supporter, it raises the profile of the club. There was a charity game here last year that attracted nearly 9,000 fans.
"We hope to get him here in September to do a little bit of training and will look to get him involved in a reserve-team game, with all the proceeds going to his charity (local children's hospice Bluebell Wood)."
