EFL quietly nudging Quantuma to take an Ashley deal if he puts one on the table. He doesn't have to pass the new owners test and they know he has the funds so they can approve the golden share movement quicker

A cynic might say this was the plan all along.

Ashley paying CK's costs to get the whole caboodle at a massive discount with HMRC debt paid up by MM?

They've only got 5 registered players (possibly 6 if they trigger an extension) so they'll be allowed to bring the squad up to 25. But, they may fall foul of the same restrictions we had last season where they picking from freebies and loans. Not too sure  but they may also have a league enforced salary cap. I don't know how a new owner affects previous accounts submissions but the rules say relegated teams are subject to Championship FFP rules until they've signed off their last set of Championship accounts.

Morris is the ring leader behind this. He’s driving the money discussions.

Is one of his other companies 'owed' as a football creditor? He's also got a few quid coming his way when he sells the stadium

I know that any done deal has to be right for him.

You need to be a financial/accounting genius to understand boardroom chatter nowadays and fortunately we have a few on here.. Thankfully they can make this more understandable to oiks like me.

In my early days supporting Wednesday, nobody queried why Wednesday were top of the list in buying players when there was a maximum wage therefore creating a level playing field. We even broke the then world record transfer fee when we bought Jackie Sewell.

Clubs accounts were ,lets say, very vague. You had a good idea who the dodgy clubs were. You would assume other clubs had spies in other clubs camp. A certain club, t'other side o't Pennines, seemed to gazump us on occasions offering better terms to the likes of Dennis Law and Harry Gregg when they were en route to sign for us.

Telegraph reporting that Ashley is taking one of the Quantuma administrators, Carl Jackson, to court. Seems Jackson promised Ashley preferred bidder status back in January and then Quantuma gave it to Kirchner.

Anyone else getting the feeling this might not end well? EFL now complaining that potential bidders won't speak to them...

Under GDPR and NDA they can't speak to the EFL

Aren't his SportsDirect headquarters and main warehouse depots in Shirebrook, Derbyshire also?

Despite being an immoral snidey see you next tuesday you can't fault his business sense.

Think it is where his base is yeah.

It has to be said, that the EFL are letting Derby use all of their nine lives, with all this time they’ve given them

Wish he'd bought us.

Cheap replica kits?

 

Edit

He could put players like Luongo on a zero hours contract.

I think these people have a plan to value the stadium at about a quarter of its claimed value and get the whole package in one go

 

The stadium will cost about 22m to cover what Morris owes MSD

David Clowes, net worth 250m is the preferred bidder.
