Off-field matters at Derby County are continuing to grab the headlines at the moment and fans will hope things can be sorted as soon as possible.
A takeover of the club has been in the offing for some time but the longer it drags out the more supporters will begin to fear for their team.
Of course, securing Wayne Rooney as permanent manager is at least one bit of stability that has been brought in but there are still serious question marks over the future of some players given wages have not been paid in full.
Indeed, there’s talk that if the takeover cannot happen the Rams will have to sell key assets to help cover the deficit and that, according to Football Insider, has alerted the likes of Leeds United to player availability.
According to the report, Derby have begun to look for agents to try and find potential buyers for players if they end up needing to sell, and that process has left Leeds monitoring the situation.
The story reaffirms Leeds’ interest in the likes of Louie Sibley, so time will tell what happens here.
Leeds have been linked with Sibley before and it is clear that this news at Derby has potentially roused their interest again.
Derby will obviously hope that they won’t end up having to sell players but it appears a possibility until the takeover is completed at least.
A worrying time off of the field for the Rams but at least they’re showing fight on it after a good win against Bournemouth earlier this week.
