However, in a stunning turn of events, Rooney's team could still be relegated to League One after the EFL won its appeal to find the club in breach of Financial Fair Play rules.

According to the Daily Mail, the sanction is still to be determined, but Derby could be facing a points deduction that could be applied to the current season or the next campaign.

If the independent panel decide to inflict the club with a three-point penalty on this term, it would relegate them to England's third tier.

Wycombe, who finished in 22nd, would be restored to the Championship if Derby are punished with a points deduction.

Derby avoided a possible points deduction last August after an independent disciplinary commission cleared them of any wrong doing regarding FFP rules.

But the EFL appealed against that decision with the report claiming they have won on ground of player valuation.

Mel Morris, who owns the club, did NOT follow accepted practice by including the depreciation of player assist in their account, which removed losses in excess of £30 million over a three-year period.
