Chelsea’s transfer ban was lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in December, permitting the Blues to sign players in the January transfer window.

However, despite the lifting of the transfer ban, Chelsea are yet to make a signing this window, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that it has been a difficult one for him.

Lampard has bemoaned the loss of former Chelsea star Eden Hazard, while also admitting that getting a good signing in January is never easy.

Lampard was asked to provide a transfer update after Chelsea beat Hull City 2-1 in the FA Cup fourth round, and he told BT Sport: “There is no movement to speak of now.

“We got a punishment in the summer and it is meant to hurt you. We lost one of the biggest players in our history in Eden Hazard. That is the situation.

“My job is to work every day on the training ground to make the players better. The other part is looking at how we can move forward by bringing in players.

“We lost ground last summer and we need to make moves now to take us forward. I have a strong feeling of where we can improve personnel-wise to take us forward.

“So for me it’s clear. The money of it is not my job but I have to be honest and truthful. Short-term recruitment is something we have to get right.”

    I always wish my lovely team the blues will always win but can’t reason why we loss games after game change the goalkeeper and pick the second goalkeeper and let see if we will get a better result.
