‘Move on from this circus’, ‘Chancers’ – These Derby County fans react to takeover development

Sheikh Khaled’s proposed deal to buy Derby County is officially over, with Mel Morris ‘furious’ at how it has collapsed.

Reports emerged back in November that the Dubai-based businessman, who is a cousin of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, was in advanced talks about purchasing the Rams. And, it was suggested that a deal should’ve been wrapped up before Christmas.

The longer it has dragged on, the more people were convinced it wasn’t going to happen, and the Telegraph have confirmed this afternoon that the deal is completely off the table now.

The update claims that Derby owner Mel Morris is livid at the actions of Sheikh Khaled, considering the time and effort that has gone into reaching an agreement.
