Chris Kirchner, a businessman from the United States, has revealed his ambition to purchase Derby County in the Championship. The Rams fell into administration last month and have filed an appeal against the English Football League’s 12-point penalty.
Wayne Rooney’s side has won three games and drawn eight, but the deduction has dropped them to the bottom of the Championship. Kirchner has now stated that he intends to purchase the club. Slync.io, a worldwide logistics company, is founded, owned, and led by the 34-year-old.
In a letter to Derby supporters released to the PA news agency, Kirchner said: “We don’t know each other yet, but we have two things in common: our love for the game of football and our desire to rebuild Derby County back into the proud club everyone deserves.
“My name is Chris Kirchner and I hope to see many of you soon – as this is my official announcement of my intention to work with the administrators to take Derby County Football Club out of administration.
