Former Derby owner Mel Morris has offered to personally take over the claims that Middlesbrough and Wycombe may have against the club. They are both seeking compensation with the potential liability of the lawsuits holding up a potential takeover. The club has been in administration since September with the club said to run out of cash this month.

“I invite Boro, and in due course Wycombe if they so wish, to take their claims to the High Court against me personally,” former Derby owner Mel Morris said. “Let DCFC move on for the benefit of the fans, the City of Derby, the sport, and the EFL. I sincerely hope the EFL, Boro, and Wycombe will respond urgently and constructively to my proposal to unlock the impasse. By preserving the rights of these parties to pursue their claims through the High Court I can see no reason why the EFL cannot allow DCFC to exit administration without issue or concern that it would be contrary to their rules, articles, and insolvency policy.”

“The EFL notes the comments published and the proposal tabled by Mr. Morris this evening,” the EFL said in a statement. “It will now review in detail before considering its position and determining an appropriate response. In the meantime, as per Thursday’s statement, the offer to engage with Mr. Morris and all other stakeholders remains in place as we seek to find the compromises required to protect Derby County in the long-term.”
