德比郡。管理者尋求短期貸款以支付工資和發行季票

經營德比郡的管理人正在尋求短期貸款,以支付6月份的員工工資。

德比郡只有五名球員與下賽季簽約,自2021年9月以來一直處于禁賽期。

在給支持者的一份聲明中,管理人Quantuma說,俱樂部的未來 "必須很快得到保障"。

前首選投標人克里斯-基希納上周撤回了他對這個聯賽俱樂部的報價,促使德比的未來進一步不確定。公羊隊已經被管理了九個月。

前主席安迪-阿普爾比和紐卡斯爾聯隊的前老闆邁克-阿什利是已知有興趣接管該俱樂部的人之一。

  • 無 EFL對無法與競標者對話感到 "沮喪
  • 無 德比郡為拯救俱樂部下一步將轉向哪裡?

在他們的聲明中,聯合管理人Carl Jackson和Andrew Hocking說。"在最終確定出售之前,有一個迫切的要求,即確保俱樂部的短期未來,讓球員簽約,發行季票出售,並確保商業協議,以及我們最好的意圖,使員工和支持者的不確定性儘快結束。"

該聲明繼續說。"我們正在與感興趣的各方就短期要求進行極其積極和富有成效的討論,並對這些討論導致此後的出售充滿信心,這將確保俱樂部的長期未來。

"然而,我們不認為強加'硬期限'是現階段的答案。"

沒有奢侈的時間

管理人正在尋找能夠全額支付足球債權人、為其他債權人支付至少25便士的投標人,並就俱樂部不擁有的榮耀公園球場提出建議。

對其他債權人提供低於25便士的建議也將被考慮,但這將導致英國足球聯盟對其進行15分的處罰。

德比郡上賽季因進入行政管理和違反財務條例而被扣掉21分,從冠軍聯賽中降級。

聲明還說:"所有感興趣的各方都知道,儘快到位符合他們的利益,以便他們組建一支有競爭力的球員隊伍,確保有價值的商業合同,同時讓員工和球迷對未來充滿信心。

"俱樂部沒有多餘的時間,因此,即使沒有硬性的最後期限,俱樂部的未來也必須很快得到保障。"

管理者說,他們每天都在與EFL聯繫,以更新他們的進展,因為管理機構在本月早些時候說他們希望更密切地參與尋找買家。

管理者的聲明受到了支持者團體的歡迎,正如24小時前EFL的聲明一樣。但是,讓德比郡為他們自1985年以來在第三級聯賽的第一個賽季做好準備的前景遠非一帆風順。

他們有五個合同球員,其餘的人預計將在下周走出大門。英足總需要澄清德比郡如何在轉會禁令下簽署球員?是否會改變規則,讓他們現在可以這樣做?一些憤世嫉俗者會說是的,因為降級已經發生,其他各方都很滿意。

毫無疑問,Quantuma正在幕後努力結束這個過程,但一切發生的速度似乎為俱樂部和誰證明是新的所有者帶來了更多的債務。

一位接近安迪-阿普爾比集團的人士告訴我,在提交了 "高度競爭的競標 "六天後,沒有任何進展,只是承認收到了競標。

為什麼EFL與想要購買俱樂部的相關方交談如此困難?雖然已經簽署了保密協議,但EFL將不得不批准任何交易,以最終完成俱樂部的銷售,所以,如果加快事情的進展,又有什麼區別呢?

從外面看,這似乎是一個爛攤子,幾乎沒有溝通或結束的跡象。我已經向管理者提交了問題,並要求EFL進行澄清。我仍在等待答覆。

Administrators running Derby County are seeking a short-term loan to pay the wages of staff for June.

Derby have only five players contracted for next season, having been under the embargo since September 2021.

In a statement to supporters, administrators Quantuma said the club's future "must be secured very soon".

Former preferred bidder Chris Kirchner withdrew his offer for the League One club last week, prompting further uncertainty about Derby's future. The Rams have been in administration for nine months.

Ex-chairman Andy Appleby and Mike Ashley, the former owner of Newcastle United, are among those known to be interested in taking over the club. • None EFL 'frustrated' at not being able to speak to bidders • None Where will Derby turn next in bid to save club?

In their statement , joint administrators Carl Jackson and Andrew Hocking said: "Before a sale is finalised, there is an immediate requirement to secure the short-term future of the club, to allow players to be signed, issue season tickets for sale and to secure commercial agreements, as well as our best intentions to bring the uncertainty for staff and supporters to an end as soon as possible."

The statement continued: "We are having extremely positive and productive discussions with interested parties in relation to the short-term requirements and are confident of those discussions leading to a sale thereafter which will secure the club's long-term future.

"We do not, however, believe that imposing 'hard deadlines' are the answer at this stage."

'Not the luxury of time'

The administrators are looking for bidders who will pay football creditors in full, pay at least 25p in the pound for other creditors and have proposals regarding Pride Park stadium, which the club does not own.

Proposals offering less than 25p in the pound for other creditors will also be considered, but this would result in a 15-point penalty being imposed by the English Football League.

Derby were relegated from the Championship last season after having 21 points deducted for going into administration and breaches of financial regulations.

The statement added: "All interested parties know that it is in their interests to be in situ as soon as possible in order for them to put together a competitive playing squad and secure valuable commercial contracts whilst giving staff and fans certainty for the future.

"The club does not have the luxury of time, and so, even without hard deadlines, the club's future must be secured very soon."

The administrators say they are in daily contact with the EFL to update them on progress after the governing body said earlier this month that they wanted to be more closely involved in the search for a buyer.

The administrators' statement has been welcomed by supporters groups, as was the EFL one 24 hours prior. But the landscape of getting Derby County ready for their first season in the third tier since 1985 is far from smooth.

They have five contracted players with the rest expected to walk out of the door next week. The EFL needs to clarify how Derby can sign players while under a transfer embargo? Will rules be changed to afford them to do this now? Some cynics would say yes because relegation has happened and other parties are satisfied.

There is no doubt Quantuma are working behind the scenes to end this process, but the speed at which everything is happening seems to be incurring more debt for the club and whoever the new owner proves to be.

A source close to the Andy Appleby group has told me that six days after submitting a "highly competitive bid", there has been no progress and just an acknowledgement of it being received.

Why is it so difficult for the EFL to speak to the parties involved who want to buy the club? Although non-disclosure agreements have been signed, the EFL will have to ratify any deal to finalise a sale of the club, so what difference does it make if it speeds things up?

From the outside, it seems like a mess, with little communication or end in sight. I have submitted questions to the administrators and asked the EFL for clarification. I am still waiting for a response. • None How did J Edgar Hoover know too much for any US president to fire him? • None Jonathan Agnew asks Moeen Ali all of your questions in the commentary box
