Derby County Football Club has revealed that an agreement to purchase the club has been reached with No Limits Sports Limited.
Subject to EFL approval, the transaction is expected to close “in the near future.”
The news comes after a deal fell apart to sell the club to Derventio Holdings (UK) Limited, whose ultimate controlling entity is Bin Zayed International LLC, owned by Sheikh Khaled Zayed Bin Saquer Zayed Al Nayhan.
A statement from Derby County Football Club says: “Derby County Football Club wishes to confirm that a definitive agreement to purchase the club has been reached with No Limits Sports Limited.
“The transaction, which is still subject to the EFL’s Owners and Directors Test approval, is expected to close in the near future.
“As agreed with No Limits Sports there will be no further comment until the transaction is complete. This is to ensure that all of the club’s focus will be on the Championship run in.”
