The fact that there are a lot of debts to look at and analyse is one of the factors slowing down any movement over a prospective Derby County takeover, according to journalist Alan Nixon.
The Rams look like a club in crisis at the moment, with the EFL’s latest statement outlining that the threat of a retrospective points deduction and relegation to League One still looms over them.
Additionally, the departures of Andre Wisdom, Curtis Davies, Martyn Waghorn, and Lee Gregory are set to leave them with a significantly depleted squad, while Wayne Rooney’s preparations for next term are limited as the club remain under a transfer embargo.
Those financially driven issues have not been helped by multiple proposed takeovers falling through in 2021, while things seem to have gone very quiet concerning Mel Morris’ sale of the club recently.
Pressed on what is causing such slow process concerning that at the moment, Nixon has indicated that part of the reason things are dragging on is that there are lots of debts at the club that need to be looked at and analysed.
What was the score the last time Derby County played each of these 25 teams?
Derby fans have had absolutely no rest over the past few months and things don’t seem to be getting any easier.
The difficult thing for them is that it seems as though a takeover is desperately needed but with all that’s going on surrounding the club at the moment, you feel people may not want to take the risk of becoming the new owners.
Nixon’s insight has highlighted that even if there are parties still willing to take the plunge, there’s a lot to consider and it may well be slow movement.
