‘Cheers Mel’, ‘Light at the end of the tunnel’ – These Derby fans react as agreement reportedly reached with EFL

It may have taken a while, but there may finally be a breakthrough in the case involving Derby County and the EFL.

And it’s not exactly the kind of update that Rams fans will have wanted to hear, but it may be a case of taking a hefty punishment and moving on to take one step backwards and two steps forward.

An independent commission fined the Rams £100,000 due to their irregular amortisation policies, and whilst they considered appealing this due to the lack of severity in the punishment, the EFL ultimately accepted the sanction.

However punishment over the club’s other financial breaches had yet to be settled, however according to the Daily Mail’s Mike Keegan an agreement has been made in principle between the two parties.
