Football teams are reportedly furious with Derby County for refusing to accept player bids. Since Mel Morris decided to hire business consultancy firm Quantuma in September, the Rams have been in administration.

Last week, Derby manager Wayne Rooney said that he had turned down bids for his players. While the names of those players have not been revealed. There has been a lot of talk over Lee Buchanan’s future. Nottingham Forest is interested in signing Buchanan, who is presently injured.

Rooney was emphatic that his team’s players would not be sold on the cheap. With the Rams manager aiming to keep his squad together in the second half of the season. In the hope of avoiding relegation from the Championship.

While Derby has angered clubs by refusing bids for their players, the EFL reportedly being approached about the matter.

Millwall, managed by former Rams boss Gary Rowett. Reportedly had an offer for Louie Sibley refused. And Premier League clubs were turned down after approaching Buchanan.

Why have Derby County taken such a stance?

Derby County is seeking to be bought out, but a breakthrough in negotiations with Middlesbrough and Wycombe Wanderers. Those who have both filed compensation claims against the club is required.

While Mike Ashley, the former owner of Newcastle United. Is thought to be interested in a takeover. While Andy Applebly, the former chairman of the Rams. Is leading a consortium that includes former Wolverhampton Wanderers chief executive Jez Moxey.

While the footballers of Derby County are one group of people that are now fighting against the odds. They were knocked out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle by Coventry City. Cutting off a potential source of further cash, but there is still a chance they might avoid relegation. Which has been viewed as inevitable since the extent of their financial incompetence became public. With 10 points from their previous 12 league games. They’re only three points below second-bottom Barnsley and 11 points clear of relegation.

Since the gravity of the club’s issues were revealed. While Wayne Rooney has impressed as a manager with the manner he’s carried himself. And this has started to be matched by success on the pitch.
