The Court of Arbitration has heeded to Chelsea’s request and has suspended their transfer ban pending a final decision.

Fifa banned the Premier League club from signing players in the next two transfer windows after they were found guilty of inducing Gael Kakuta to breach his contract with Lens two years ago

The club had asked the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to suspend the punishment until the outcome of their appeal against it is decided. Kakuta, who was banned from playing for four months, had also appealed against Fifa’s ruling.

A statement on the website of the Court of Arbitration for Sport reads as follows:

“The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has granted the request for a stay filed by Chelsea Football Club Ltd and Mr Gaël Kakuta in relation to the decision taken by the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber on 27 August 2009.

“The FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber imposed, inter alia, a restriction of four months’ ineligibility on Mr Gaël Kakuta, and Chelsea Football Club Ltd was banned from registering any new players, either nationally or internationally, for the next two complete, consecutive registration periods. Such sanctions are now stayed until the CAS renders its final decision in this matter.”
