English Premier League club Chelsea has confirmed they will appeal FIFA’s decision to impose a two-window transfer ban on the club.
They were also fined more than £460,000, while the FA face a £390,000 sanction.
FIFA have given the club 90 days to rectify the situation concerning the players signed.
Chelsea, in a statement, however, made it clear that they “categorically refute the findings of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee and will therefore be appealing the decision”.
The appeal will be heard by the FIFA Appeal Committee, while the club can also appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
