The Rams had received approval from the EFL for the deal to go through in November, and it seemed a matter of time before it was finalised.
However, constant delays have infuriated the fans, even though they have constantly been reassured that the deal will go through.

It was reported back in August last year that a company linked to Dell had given the Rams a loan.
