Chelsea transfer ban lifted
Published : 04 Feb 2010 18:14:57
Chelsea's transfer embargo was lifted today after they were cleared of any wrongdoing over the transfer of Gael Kakuta.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport found in Chelsea's favour after FIFA had banned them from signing any new players until 2011 as punishment for allegedly inducing Kakuta to break his contract with Lens.
Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck said: "We are pleased to have come to an amicable resolution of the matter and that it has been ratified by CAS and recognised by FIFA."
