Derby City Council is owed more than £100,000 by troubled football club Derby County.

A slump into administration with combined debts of about £60m, along with other financial breaches, has seen the club docked a total of 21 points.

A new breakdown of debts has shown a list of local creditors, among them the city authority, BBC News reported.

The council said the payments were for “business rates and rental of south car park for match days”.

Administrators Quantuma are now handling the club’s financial affairs while trying to find it a new owner.

A report filed as part of the administration process shows more than £29m is owed to HM Revenue and Customs and £20m to US investment group MSD Holdings.

In addition, a combination of football and trade creditors are owed about £15m.

In a statement, Derby City Council said: “The DCFC Notice of Accounts were released at the weekend, which acknowledges historic outstanding payments due to Derby City Council for a variety of different services provided to the club.

“The club’s auditors have a duty to deal with these overdue payments and we are in separate ongoing talks with them on this issue.”
