THE proposed acquisition of Derby is set to be completed THIS WEEK after an initial bid was accepted on Sunday.
The Rams have been in administration since last year and were relegated to League One at the end of last season.
But fans have finally got some positive news.
Sky Sports report that the club’s administrators have officially accepted an offer from Derbyshire-based property group Clowes Developments.
David Clowes, chairman of the real estate company, is a Derby supporter.
And journalist Jake Barker has claimed the deal will be finalized by Wednesday.
Crucially, the report also states that there will be no further point deductions.
This will be music to the ears of Derby fans who watched their side deduct 21 points last season.
Manager Wayne Rooney would have led his team to 18th if they hadn’t docked points.
But that’s how they ended up in 23rd place when the club was relegated to the third division.

Assistant manager Liam Rosenior will lead the team’s pre-season camp, which begins on Monday.
And fans will now be hoping their side can trade on and off the pitch in the transfer market after a torrid 12 months.
