Chelsea able to buy in January after transfer ban reduced

The club already served one half of the Federation Internationale de Football Association ban when they were unable to register new players in the off-season.

Chelsea have shown few signs of being affected by the transfer ban this season under the leadership of Frank Lampard, who took over last summer, leading to academy graduates including Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori taking leading roles in the side.

'The sole arbitrator found that CFC did violate Articles 19.1 (related to the global transfer of minors) and 19.3 (related to the first registration of minors), but for a significantly smaller number of players (about one third of the violations found by FIFA),' a CAS statement read on Friday.

Sticking with Chelsea and transfers, the Independent recently published a report with the headline "Chelsea transfer news: Wilfried Zaha contact made ahead of potential summer move from Crystal Palace".

And the CAS announced on Friday that the Blues have had their two-window ban to one, which was served in the summer, while also cutting the club's fine in two.

"The warning and the reprimand are confirmed".

The club were found to have breached Article 19 and Article 18b of the Regulation of Transfers and Status of Players by FIFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Committee.

CAS were keen to confirm their verdict in time for the club to know whether they can be involved in the January 2020 transfer window.

Chelsea will now be able to sign new recruits in January, with a left-back a priority for manager Lampard. Chelsea also broke rules prohibiting third-party influence on players.
