Derby County: Mike Ashley

A senior executive for Mike Ashley revealed that he is fully committed to buying Derby County but has become frustrated with the obstacles preventing a takeover. Keith Bishop said that the debts and complexity of the deal do not bother him but the clock is ticking to save the Championship club from liquidation. Ashley is one of the three potential buyers hoping to take charge.

“He is 100 percent interested in buying the club,” a senior executive for Mike Ashley said about his interest in Derby County. “He wants the Derby fans to know he is very much interested. He sees it as a club that could do really well, obviously, it’s not doing very well at the moment, but with his business acumen, he believes he could really turn it around. He’s still a very rich man, who has got the funds to put into the club, and he has got the business acumen to change things there.”

“If I were a Derby fan I’d be very happy. And from the response we are getting, there are a lot of fans who want him to come in and take the club over. With where they are now, they deserve a lot better. And that’s what he can do,” he added. “He seeks out things like this, it doesn’t frighten him. He’s also liked Derby for a number of years, he knows about their past – the 70s and 80s, the Cloughie years – and he knows about the fans, who are a good set of fans.”
