It has been confirmed that the West London outfit Chelsea have finally appealed against the transfer ban handed to them by the world football governing body FIFA.

Chelsea will not take part in the next two transfer windows as they will not be able to register any new player within the time frame, in addition to the £460,000 fine that was handed to them.

The Blues have been found guilty of involving in some transfer deals for players under the age of 18, against the established rules of the game.

As soon as the ban was announced, the West London outfit vowed to appeal, which they have successfully done.

However, FIFA has made it clear that they do not have a fixed time to sit over the appeal and make a case for the Blues team as it would only be decided by the appeal chairman.

Meanwhile, suggestions are that the Blues side are ready to live with the appeal for this coming summer as it is not sure there will be a judgment before it is reopened but there are chances that they will miss out on the coming winter transfer window, should they win the appeal.
