Chelsea free to sign players after transfer ban overturned

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is free to sign new players next month after the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned the club's transfer ban.

The Blues were initially sanctioned by world governing body FIFA in February of this year.

Chelsea's appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport was heard last month, with the London outfit contesting FIFA's two-window ban relating to the signing of overseas youth players.

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.
