Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is fully committed to Chelsea Football Club despite stalling plans to redevelop Stamford Bridge, claims Sky Sports.

Abramovich sanctioned the decision to put all further developments of Chelsea’s home ground on hold and reports claim he took the decision after delays in his UK Visa renewal.

Having become an Israeli citizen last week, Abramovich can now visit Britain for up to six months a year, but will have to apply for a work permit if he wishes to do business here.

Abramovich was due to invest up to £1billion in redeveloping Stamford Bridge and it was expected the new stadium would be ready for the start of the 2020-2021.
