A senior member of the Abu Dhabi royal family who recently failed with high-profile bids for Liverpool and Newcastle United is interested in a Derby County takeover, Matt Slater can reveal...

Last month, Derventio Holdings (UK) Limited was registered at Companies House, the UK's registrar of companies, with three directors: Bin Zayed Group managing director Midhat Kamil Kidwai and two Swiss-based British entrepreneurs, Andrew Obolensky and Christopher Samuelson. Sheikh Khaled is listed as a "person with significant control"...

Neither the Bin Zayed Group nor Samuelson have responded to requests for comment.

Now it gets interesting, though it seems to be all based off of the name of the company they've registered.

Though some ITKers did say a few weeks back that Mel has basically sold up...

It is noticeable how quiet Mel has been recently - maybe he's wary of being put on the spot if he talks to the press at present....

Whoever invests, I hope Mel doesn’t sell up entirely. I like him, like what he’s tried to do with the club (even where he’s been let down), he’s local and he’s a fan. 
I wouldn’t blame if he wanted to sell up considering the grief he gets and the money is has undoubtedly lost, but I hope he will still retain control whatever happens.

With who's looking to potentially invest, I can't imagine that happening

I really hope we don't sell the club to human rights abusers. I know Mel is mad, but he's not chopping up journalists into little pieces as far as I'm aware. 

This guy is the cousin of Man City's owners. I think they're typically ok, unless you're homosexual (or a cross-dresser apparently) or overly drunk or have drugs in your system. I mean, still pretty intolerant, but more tolerant than the Saudis. 

I, for one, welcome our new wealthy overlords.
