Chelsea's transfer ban uplifted by CAS
The decision means the Blues can buy players in January
Chelsea’s transfer ban has been uplifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
FIFA handed the London club a two-window transfer ban in Fevruary after being found guilty of breaching two of its regulations on player transfers.
The Blues have challenged verdicts by FIFA's disciplinary and appeal committees which stated that they had violated rules protecting minors from trafficking on 150 occasions. Those cases involved about 70 players.
The Blues have served half of their one-year transfer ban on registering players during the summer window. Chelsea also broke rules prohibiting third-party influence on players. FIFA imposed a fine of £467,000 but the club has denied wrongdoing.
Their transfer ban was halved by CAS meaning, Lampard can buy players next month to strengthen their squad.
