Rams fans given hope as EFL grants deadline extension

Pride Park Stadium, home of Derby County

Derby County administrators have been given a month-long extension to prove it has the funds in place to make it to the end of the season.

The EFL has granted the extra time to administrators Quantuma, after previously saying it wanted the evidence of funding by February 1.

A joint statement from the EFL and Quantuma said: “It is appreciated that many people have been waiting to receive an update over the last 48 hours but given the complexity and ever-changing circumstances, our priority has been to provide clarity once there is a definitive position.

“Our commitment as ever remains addressing the many challenges at hand and we will look to provide updates as soon as we are able to.”
