Derby boss Paul Jewell has revealed that the club have already spent the first year of parachute payments which they will receive after their relegation. Derby, who are in danger of recording the lowest points total in the history of the Premier League, were beaten 6-0 at home by Aston Villa last Saturday.Jewell told BBC Radio Derby: "It has gone for next year.
"It was spent before I got here by the previous regime so it is not as though I have got all that to spend.
"Luckily, the board say they are going to give me some money."
Derby have won just one league game all season and have managed to secure a paltry 11 points from their 34 games.
