Football: Chelsea free to transfer players in January
Chelsea's transfer ban for breaching rules on signing minors to be lifted in January
The England's Premier League club Chelsea can sign players during the January transfer window after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) lifted their embargo on Friday.
CAS issued its decision in a statement on Friday in the arbitration procedure between Chelsea and FIFA.
The ban imposed by FIFA for breaching rules on signing young players was due to cover two last summer and upcoming winter transfer windows for the English club.
CAS also reduced Chelsea’s fine by half from 600,000 to 300,000 Swiss francs ($303,000).Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form. Please contact us for subscription options.
