LONDON (Reuters) - The Chelsea Court of Arbitration has reduced a one-year ban on Chelsea, allowing the English Premier League club to sign players in January's transfer window.
The court reduced the fine imposed on the club to about $ 300,000.
`` Chelsea have been punished by denying new players locally or internationally for a full transfer period and the club has already carried out the punishment in the summer of 2019, '' the court said in a statement.
The court's decision will allow Chelsea to sign new players in the next winter transfer window to strengthen the team, which has achieved good results in the English league despite being deprived of signing players last summer.
Coach Frank Lampard turned to the young players of the club to cover shortcomings, vacancies and competition in all competitions.
