Lampard expects CAS verdict soon
Frank Lampard claims that the Court of Arbitration for Sport's (CAS) verdict on Chelsea's appeal against a FIFA imposed transfer ban is "coming very soon".
The Blues were banned from signing any new players for two transfer windows after being found guilty of breaching rules regarding the transfer of minors back in February.
Chelsea have already served half of their sentence, but deny any wrongdoing in the first place, and hope to be granted a reprieve so that they can bring in reinforcements in January.
The club's final appeal was heard at CAS headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland a couple of weeks ago, and Lampard says that a final decision is now imminent.
He told a press conference: "I haven't heard any more so I will wait and reserve judgement. The judgement is coming very soon."
Lampard added that he expects the verdict to be announced within "days", as he makes the final preparations for Aston Villa's arrival at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
