BARCELONA’S ONE-YEAR transfer ban for breaching rules on signing U18 players was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Tuesday.

The court said in a statement that it had “dismissed” an appeal. The Spanish football giants are now banned from buying players during the transfer window that opens on 1 January and for the summer transfer period before the 2015-16 season.

Barcelona were also fined €375,000.

“The Panel found in particular that FC Barcelona had breached the rules regarding the protection of minors and the registration of minors attending football academies,” said the statement.
