Chelsea confirm they will appeal FIFA’s transfer ban

Chelsea have confirmed they will appeal FIFA’s decision to impose a two-window transfer ban on the club.

The Premier League side have been banned from signing players, after being found guilty of breaching rules about signing minors by FIFA.

The Premier League club have also been fined more than £460,000, while the FA face a £390,000 sanction.

FIFA have given the club 90 days to rectify the situation concerning the players signed.

Chelsea, in a statement, however made it clear that they “categorically refute the findings of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee and will therefore be appealing the decision”.

The appeal will be heard by FIFA Appeal Committee, while the club can also appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
