Chelsea captain John Terry says he expects manager Carlo Ancelotti to bring in some new faces to bolster the Blues’ squad during the January transfer window.
Chelsea had their transfer ban suspended pending appeal so will be free to bring players in when the window opens again.
And with the prospect of Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, Michael Essien and John Obi Mikel heading for the African Nations Cup in January, Terry expects Ancelotti to be active in January.
“It’s good news about the transfer ban being suspended but we lose four good players to the African Nations Cup in January anyway,” he told the Sun.
“I’m sure the club and the manager are looking into that and having good talks with Roman. I wouldn’t be surprised if we do go out and buy because we don’t know what’s going to happen in the summer – or the following summer.”
