Administrators of Championship club Derby County believe that they will complete the sale of the club in January. The club is bottom of the Championship table after they have deducted 21 points. Quantuma is handling the takeover and is hopeful that the club will have new owners next year. Compensation claims from Middlesbrough and Wycombe Wanderers have seen progress but are still under discussion. Derby finished ahead of them in the 2018/19 and 2020/21 seasons respectively.
“We are continuing to make good progress and are seeking to complete a sale of Derby County Football Club in late January 2022,” joint administrator and Quantuma CEO Carl Jackson who are handing the administration of Championship club Derby County said. “This is subject to the successful outcome of negotiations with key stakeholders and interested parties which has always been the case.”
“By way of key matters still to resolve, later this month we expect to have identified a preferred buyer and made progress with ongoing discussions with HMRC, Middlesbrough Football Club, and Wycombe Wanderers FC,” he added. “All these matters will determine the most appropriate exit route from the administration. We can confirm at this stage that exclusivity has not been granted to any individual or group and we continue to have constructive discussions with a number of Interested parties. In terms of funding, this has been secured by the administrators, with a charge recently filed at Companies House. Day-to-day work to secure the future of this historic football club continues and while there are no guarantees, we remain confident of a positive outcome for the club.”
