It will reportedly be resolved next week whether Bin Zayed International can complete their Derby County takeover deal, which has drawn an interesting reaction from fans of the East Midlands club.
The wait for the prospective new owners, led by Sheikh Khaled Bin Zayed, to complete their takeover has been ongoing since a sale agreement was signed back in November.
Yesterday reports indicated the former Sheffield Wednesday advisor Erik Alonso is in advanced talks over a potential takeover of his own, while Sky Sports has indicated that Mel Morris has given Bin Zayed a final deadline to complete his deal.
According to The Telegraph’s John Percy, it will be resolved next week whether Bin Zayed International can go through with the takeover that they have been linked to for so long.
We may finally be moving toward a resolution and a change in ownership at Derby, with the timeline provided by Percy indicating that a major decision will be made next week.
His update has drawn a mixed reaction from Rams fans, with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Well there's some hope that there are at least two others interested that we know of. A wasted year. https://t.co/N5LvqE5dc3

Fingers crossed one of those other two are more credible than Alonso and co. https://t.co/CgQLrb6NUx
