A number of Derby County supporters have been left happy with the news that a planned takeover of the club has now officially been called off.
The Rams ensured they remained in the Championship for another season last weekend, following a breathless final day – providing they survive a possible points deduction.
Wayne Rooney’s side may only have managed to draw 3-3 at home to Sheffield Wednesday, but Rotherham’s failure to win away to Cardiff City meant Derby stayed up.
It was a huge relief for everyone associated with the club, with hope that they can now push onto bigger and better things with Rooney at the helm.
Talk surrounding a takeover taking place at Pride Park has not been met with resounding positivity however, but that news has now taken a twist.
According to BBC Sport, Spanish businessman Erik Alonso’s proposed takeover of Derby has fallen through, with his company, No Limit Sports Limited, failing to complete a deal.
