According to the Daily Mail, Morris has not yet put the club up for sale.

But he will consider his future at the end of the season, particularly if rookie manager Lampard fails to seal promotion to the Premier League.

Derby, who play Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night, have lost three matches in a row and won just once in seven games in all competitions since the start of February.

Morris, who has a personal wealth of around £500m, is local to Derby and grew up a fan of the Rams.

He made his money as an entrepreneur, investing in dating apps and mobile games.
