Chelsea free to sign players in January after court reduces transfer ban

Chelsea’s transfer ban, which prohibited the club from registering players last summer, was reduced on appeal by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Friday, allowing the Premier League side to make signings from January on.

FIFA imposed the ban in February after the Blues were found to have breached rules relating to the signing of minors.

Chelsea were also fined 600,000 Swiss francs by FIFA. They’re now due to pay half that amount.

More to come.
