Private investment firm Carlisle Capital has made a formal offer to the managers of Derby to buy the Sky Bet Championship club, PA said.

Sources close to the company say it has made an offer for the full asking price of around £28 million.

The offer, believed to be led by the company’s vice president, Adam Binnie, has been made in the knowledge that the club could face additional liability if one or both of Middlesbrough’s and Wycombe’s claims against Derby are successful.

It is clear that the offer does not apply to the club’s Pride Park stadium, which is owned by former Rams chairman Mel Morris.

The group walked out after initially showing an interest last year, but have returned at a time when the club is facing the very real threat of liquidation, having taken office last September.

The EFL has asked Derby’s trustees to prepare a funding plan by February 1, saying in a statement Thursday that, the trustees said they would run out of funds by the end of the month.

The EFL has also called on the trustees to name a preferred bidder.

Middlesbrough and Wycombe’s claims – and whether they would qualify as football creditors and thus be entitled to the full value of any compensation arising from their lawsuits – have further complicated the situation at Derby, but Carlisle’s offer has been made despite Which.

Derby boss Wayne Rooney is working on the biggest breakouts on the pitch.

Despite racking up 21 points for entering administration and violating financial regulations, the Rams are just eight points away from safety en route to Saturday afternoon’s clash with bitter local rivals Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Rooney was asked about the importance of quickly resolving the crisis at Derby.

“Derby County is much more than just a football club. It gives people in the city hope, it gives children the right to dream, to dream to play for their club,” he said.

“It gives young players opportunities, and we’ve seen that even more this year. It brings a lot of hope, it helps many charities in the city.

“So for Derby to be in this situation is really incredible, where it’s been left behind, but this is where we are.

“Hopefully we can get the right support and funding to ensure that this club stays in the football pyramid, otherwise many hearts will be broken and it will be a huge loss to the city.”

Rooney said he had been assured that no more players would leave without his input following the shocking departures of Phil Jagielka and Graeme Shinnie last week.

He did announce that the club had agreed a fee with a Premier League club, known to be Chelsea, for 18-year-old left-back Dylan Williams.

“It’s one I thought I couldn’t deny him the chance. It’s my decision, not the administrators’ decision,” Rooney said.
