Chelsea has officially appealed against FIFA sanction following their ban from signing players for the next two transfer windows, according to report in BBC Sport.
Chelsea was found guilty of signing underage foreign players after a strict investigation carried out by the football governing body FIFA.
Fifa says it found breaches in 29 cases out of 92 investigated, including striker Bertrand Traore, now at Lyon.
FIFA confirmed that they have received appealed from the Premier League club but could not confirm when this would be heard.
Chelsea was fined £460,000, while the Football Association has been fined £390,000.
The ban, which runs until the end of January 2020, does not prevent the release of players and will not apply to their women’s and futsal teams.
