Chelsea is set to learn about the appeal of their two-window transfer ban in December over matter regarding the transfer violation of young players by the club.
The CAS panel is expected to announce its findings in the first or second week of December and depending on the outcome of the appeal, the club might be able to invest in players and register them during the January transfer window.
It was recalled that the Blues were initially sanctioned by world governing body FIFA in February of this year.
FIFA found the London club guilty of breaching article 19 of its regulations on the status and transfer of players (RSTP), which concerns the protection of minors.
They were also found to have breached Article 18, concerning third-party influence.
Chelsea was not allowed to sign and register new players in the most recent summer transfer window.
The month-long transfer window for English clubs opens on January 1, with the Blues having already served one of its two-transfer-window ban on registering new players.
Chelsea appealed to FIFA and the case was heard in April, but documents published by FIFA at the end of October showed its appeals committee found the Blues had committed 150 breaches of regulations.
The appeals committee agreed with the disciplinary committee that the breaches were ‘inexcusable.’
The club has made a good start to life under new head coach Frank Lampard despite not being able to sign any new players in the summer.
The likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori, all Chelsea academy products, have returned to the club from loans elsewhere to make a big impression on the first team at Stamford Bridge.
