Derby chairman Adam Pearson has outlined his plan to turn the Rams into a global force after the club were taken over by American investors.

The Barclays Premier League´s bottom club have successfully negotiated a deal with a so-far anonymous consortium who also held talks over a possible takeover of Manchester City before Thaksin Shinawatra stepped in.

In a statement to be published in the matchday programme for Saturday´s FA Cup fourth-round clash with Preston, Pearson said: "This new investment will establish the Derby County brand worldwide through successful alliances with sporting teams in the USA, the far east and Africa."
