Barcelona will be able to sign players this summer after FIFA announced that the club's transfer ban will be put on hold pending an appeal.

The Catalan club had been given a transfer ban for two windows for breaching rules on signing minors from overseas.

Barcelona have appealed and FIFA has announced the ban will be suspended until the disciplinary process is completed.

A FIFA statement said: "The chairman of the FIFA appeal committee considered that the appeal lodged by the club is to be granted suspensive effect."
