Chelsea fans are over the moon after the club’s ban in the transfer market was partially upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The Blues were originally banned from signing a player for the January transfer window, however, it was revealed that CAS has reduced the ban from two windows to one, thus the side have already served their full ban (via The Telegraph).
The Telegraph also revealed that as a result of the ban being overturned, manager Frank Lampard now has access to £150m in the winter window.
Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha and Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho are all players the west London side are reportedly interested in.
Fans were elated after the news about their ban being reduced was revealed as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the west London faithful:
