The identity of the man behind the ongoing takeover attempt of Derby County has been revealed.

What’s the latest?

According to a report by The Sun, the former Manchester City CEO Garry Crook is the man behind an American takeover bid for the Rams.

The businessman is said to have been going through Derby County’s finances with the current owner Mel Morris, who is believed to owe money to HMRC, former players and staff, as well as £17.5m to MSD Holdings.

Fans will be buzzing

With Crook boasting an impressive record of signings during his time in charge of Manchester City between 2008-2011, bringing players such as Nigel de Jong, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta and Carlos Tevez to the club, as well as appointing the eventual Premier League-winning manager Roberto Mancini, the businessman certainly has good stock in the game.

Has there been any fresh developments in Derby County’s takeover situation?

  Has there been any fresh developments in Derby County’s takeover situation? The final day of the Championship season may have seen Derby County secure survival but the weeks since have been as hectic as ever. The Rams takeover situation remains up in the air, with Erik Alonso’s bid now off due to concerns from Mel Morris about whether he was able to complete their agreed deal. […]The Rams takeover situation remains up in the air, with Erik Alonso’s bid now off due to concerns from Mel Morris about whether he was able to complete their agreed deal.

Indeed, the Birmingham-born man would very much seem to be a better choice of owner than Erik Alonso, who made a series of embarrassing faux pas after agreeing a deal to purchase Derby back in April, before Morris decided to pull the plug on that transaction.

And, with Derby facing a points deduction for breaking the EFL’s Financial Fair Play rules, with the sanctions likely to be less harsh if a takeover is completed in an efficient manner, both Morris and Crook will undoubtedly be hoping to conclude their business quickly.

This is sure to come as great news for fans of the club, who will very much be hoping to put this season behind them as fast as they possibly can, as well as praying that their club will back Wayne Rooney in the transfer market this summer, in order to mount a push towards the Championship play-off places at some point in the near future.

And, this would appear something that is all the more likely with Crook and his American financiers in charge of the Rams, with the businessman’s interest appearing to be a positive step for the club and something that will have fans buzzing about Derby’s future.
