Bank move to take control of club
Derby County's bank, the Co-Op, have filed a document, which in effect could see them take charge of the football club and sell it to whoever they wished to.
A document known as a ‘legal charge' has been filed against Sharmine ltd, the company set up by the current directors when they took charge of the Rams in 2003. The document allows the bank to seize the shares of Sharmine and transfer ownership of the club. The new owners though would still have the £42 million debt; but the club would not go into administration and lose no points, as per the football league rules
It has also been sugested that the Bank have also rejected the initial proposed investment by SISU
Neither the Co-Op nor anyone at Derby County has been available for comment.
