American Kirchner named preferential bidder for the Derby.

American businessman Chris Kirchner has been named as the preferred bidder for second-tier Derby County, administrators of the English championship club said on Wednesday.

Kirchner, 34, said in October that he wanted Derby out of administration and was seeking approval from the English Football League (EFL) to become the owner of the club.

“After a rigorous and well-documented marketing process, the joint administrators… have accepted an offer from Chris Kirchner to acquire Derby County football club out of administration,” the administrators said in a statement published by British media.

Derby, managed by former Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney, sit 23rd in the standings after 40 games due to point deductions imposed when they went into administration.
