Derby County: Journalist drops key takeover update

Derby County: Journalist drops key takeover update -Derby County News

Derby County have been boosted in their efforts to find a new buyer for the club, with journalist Alan Nixon providing a significant update on the matter.

The Lowdown: Perilous situation at Derby

The Rams are facing relegation to League One currently, despite their extremely admirable efforts, with the deducted points proving to be their downfall.

A 1-0 win against Preston will have lifted the mood of course, but off the pitch Derby are still in a perilous position, with the threat of liquidation hanging over the club all season.

Now, a fresh update has offered the Rams some major hope.

The Latest: Journalist makes key claim

Taking to Twitter, The Sun’s Nixon claims that the county council and local MPs are discussing buying Pride Park and then leasing it out, enhancing their hopes of finding a buyer:

“Derby. Potential game changer. Council and MPs discussing buying stadium and leasing to a bidder. Makes deal more attractive. Working on numbers but could be a plan. If bidders fancy idea too admins can pick and send to EFL.”

The Verdict: Potential huge boost

This is exactly the boost Derby needed in their hunt for new owners, as they look to solve a potentially fatal situation at Pride Park.

While the thought of relegation to the third tier of English football is bad enough, the idea of there not even having a club to support doesn’t bear thinking about, with football playing such a big role in the lives of so many.

This update is certainly more positive compared to other recent reports and the hope is that things continue to develop in the coming days and weeks.
