‘For this alone he gets my vote’ – Many Derby fans excited as Erik Alonso’s transfer strategy emerges

Published

Prospective Derby County owner Erik Alonso will reportedly look to improve the club’s foreign scouting network and attract more international talent, which appears to have excited many Rams fans.

It was announced earlier this week that No Limits Sports Limited, headed by Alonso, had agreed a deal to buy the East Midlands club from current owner Mel Morris.

The takeover remains subject to EFL regulations but it is thought it will be completed soon.

According to a report from Sky Sports, Alonso’s key motivation is to help the Rams secure promotion to the Premier League.

A major part of the strategy to achieve that, it is understood, will be to improve the club’s foreign scouting network and attract more international talent.

It is believed that Wayne Rooney’s future is secure as the Spaniard was attracted to the prospect of working alongside someone of his stature, who could prove a pull to potential signings.

Rooney was limited in his first transfer window as Derby boss as the club were under an embargo for much of the January window but it seems Alonso is planning to back him in that area moving forward.
