Fresh details emerge involving Erik Alonso’s failed Derby County takeover bid



Erik Alonso is the only shareholder of No Limits Sports, who had agreed a deal to buy Derby County from Mel Morris.

As had been widely reported, the Rams owner is desperate to shift the club, but an agreement with Sheikh Khaled wasn’t finalised at the end of 2020.

And, it’s been a similar case with Alonso, who was fronting up the No Limits Sports company that were seeking to purchase the Rams.

There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding that deal though, and it was unclear as to who was putting the money in alongside Alonso, who is a Spanish businessman.

A lot of rumours of potential investors had been published, but Derbyshire Live revealed last week that Tajinderpal Sumal was no longer listed as a director.

They have provided a further update today, as they confirmed that a statement filed shows that Alonso is the only shareholder.

Nevertheless, his deal for Derby has been called off, with Morris now thought to be in talks with an American consortium as he looks to sell the Championship outfit.

The verdict

Derby fans will be bored of reading about Alonso and the takeover, because the whole saga, including the prior one with Sheikh Khaled, has gone on for too long.

Many supporters will have realised straight away that Alonso wasn’t giving enough information about who was behind his deal, despite his claims at the time.

Ultimately, Morris needs to find a buyer that is serious about improving Derby but that’s going to be a major challenge considering the financial issues the club has.
