Derby´s new American owners have promised not to drag the club into the same financial turmoil that has engulfed Liverpool after securing the club in a £50million takeover.

The General Sports and Entertainment (GSE) group have bought 93% of Derby and say they aim to make the club a "global brand", but insist the identity of the consortium who have put up the money for the purchase must remain secret for the time being.

Derby chairman Adam Pearson said: "It´s a positive deal and very different to the Liverpool deal."
