Hakim Ziyech: Chelsea manager Graham Potter says winger is back at club after Paris Saint-Germain deal fell through | Football News

Chelsea manager Graham Potter says Hakim Ziyech has returned to training and will be available for Friday’s game against Fulham after his move to Paris Saint-Germain collapsed on Deadline Day.

Ziyech’s loan move fell through with Ligue 1 unwilling to ratify the transfer following the late submission of documents.

PSG lodged an appeal to the Professional Football League (LFP)’s legal committee, alleging that the Stamford Bridge club had initially sent through the incorrect paperwork after the terms of an agreement had been finalised.

When it was flagged, they claim Chelsea sent the right documents twice but without a signature. When the correct version was received, the deadline had already passed.
