Ndi Chelsea fans would be over the moon on this.

In a report monitored from sky sports, the report is suggesting that Chelsea's ban in partaking in Transfers and buying players has been reduced and implies chelsea can now buy players this January Transfer window.

Chelsea already eyeing Zaha.

The Reports suggested that Chelsea FC who currently sit fourth in the Premier League table after 15 games will now be boosted by their ability to strengthen their squad in January.

The report further sugestted that Chelsea's fine has also been halved from £460,000 to £230,000.

Recall that FIFA handed down a two-window transfer ban on Chelsea in February this year and rejected Chelsea's appeal against the punishment in April.

Chelsea served the first window of their ban in the summer but made a further appeal at the Court of Abbitration for Sports last month, who accepted submissions about the case from the club as well as FIFA.

What this means now is that Chelsea are free to sign players in January after their appeal against a transfer ban imposed by FIFA was reduced by half by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

CAS say they have reduced the ban as they found Chelsea guilty of breaching two of its regulations on player transfers, specifically regarding bringing in U18s and 'third-party influence' but "for a significantly smaller number of players (about 1/3 of the violations found by FIFA)".
