Posted on: Thu 05 Oct 2006

The transfer process that moves Ashley Cole to Chelsea, William Gallas to Arsenal and Robert Huth to Middlesbrough has been completed with the news that the FA Premier League has accepted the registration of the players.

 

In a statement issued on Friday afternoon, the Premier League states:

 

While not all the documentation was received prior to the midnight deadline, the FA Premier League is satisfied that the deals were completed in time and that the delay in paperwork being received was due to circumstances outside the control of the Clubs.

 

The registration completes all transfer dealing for 2006. The transfer window re-opens in January.
