Wayne Rooney’s Derby wants to turn the tables on the EFL and claim PRIVATE if they finish below Reading

WAYNE ROONEY’S Derby County is poised to turn the tables on the EFL – and claim compensation if they finish under the Reading.

Rams administrators and their advisors have studied a legal report that the Federation is using to justify Middlesbrough and Wycombe demanded millions from them.

The EFL has classified the couple as having ‘football related debts’, which means Derby have to solve the problem and maybe find the money at the end of the season.

Derby received nine points for violating the Financial Fair Play Act – out of 12 for participating in government.

But Read only received a six-point penalty for their violations of the EFL rules.

If the gap between the pair is three points or less after 46 games, that could lead to a different club than the legal club.

Derby’s argument would be that they scored more points than Reading – the same kind of technique that gave them such grief with Boro and Wycombe.

Candlestick RooneyReading’s men went down and Reading escaped after which the Rams attempted to quote the EFL legal judgment of top lawyer Stephenson Harwood which is currently being used against them.

Wycombe has filed a lawsuit against Derby for lost revenue following a similar drop in form last season.

The £6m to £14m demand – coupled with Boro’s claims – is a major barrier to leaving the administration.

And while Derby’s administrators argue against the claims, they intend to use it on their own.

That could see an attempt to squeeze a major settlement from the Royal Family as football turns to legal disputes off the pitch.

Ironically, the EFL will consider ending rows between these clubs in the future but any requirements for the current season could still apply.

Meanwhile, the next Derby owners are receiving a possible £1.5m bonus from the sale of striker Luke Plange to Crystal Palace.

Rams administrators negotiated add-ons to the deal when the Eagles bought the 19-year-old for £1m.

If Plange is successful with Palace, more cash will be paid out and his eventual value could be as high as £2.5m.
