Fifa had ruled the club could not sign players until 2011 after inducing Gael Kakuta to
break his Lens contract.
But Chelsea appealed to Cas, which said on Friday: "Such sanctions are now stayed
until the Cas renders its final decision in this matter."
The decision means Chelsea will be able to sign players in January.
Am I alone in thinking that they will shake the market in January with at least
one big, big signing in order to be ready for whatever the final decision could be?
