Ex-blues Star Gus Poyet has expressed his disappointment at the lack of transfer activity in the blues January transfer window but claims Ziyech is a fantastic signing for the club.
“Ziyech has plenty of quality,” former Blues star Poyet told talkSPORT.
“He’ll be an exciting player for the fans. I was just disappointed Chelsea didn’t get any players in January, to be honest.
“You cannot have the season you’re having with the transfer ban. Then you go to the appeal – probably spend a lot of money getting that appeal – and showing everybody you want the appeal, and after having the chance to sign in January, you don’t and you sign someone on February 12. It’s strange.
“It’s a new situation, especially for Frank Lampard and his staff. I hope they are able to keep dealing with the situation in the best possible way and finish in the top four.”
