Chief Executive Officer Stephen Pearce has issued an update on behalf of Derby County’s Board of Directors to the club’s supporters.
It was a frustrating season for the Rams, as Wayne Rooney’s side avoided relegation into League One on the final day of the 2020/21 season.
The update included from Pearce included words on the proposed takeover by Erik Alonso, with the transaction ‘no longer under consideration’.
“In respect to the agreement with No Limits Sports Limited, this transaction is no longer under consideration.
“An announcement was made in April that a deal was agreed between Mel Morris and No Limits Sports Limited, but subsequent developments mean the deal is no longer an option.”
Which clubs do these former Derby County players play for nowadays?
Plenty of Derby County supporters took to social media to react to this recent update, with the majority being pleased to see some communication from the club ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Thank you for the response. It just didn't need all the fans to club together to put this message out!! Good to know there are a number of options looking to take the club forward 🤞 COYR

I appreciate the update, clearly would have been better to have not been prompted but still happy a brief has been put out, positive we have active discussions for the club and ground and hopefully we can start off a new sooner rather than later, more updates soon please🐏

That’s a decent statement to be fair, hopefully the due diligence can carry over quickly to the new owners as Rooney has a massive rebuilding job on his hands.

We slate the club so much but this morning I think they deserve praise for finally engaging with us, so much more work to be done behind the scenes before we can be comfortable about our future as #dcfcfans. https://t.co/ThIcd03KrO
