Chelsea face new French threat over Jeremy Boga signing

Chelsea are facing a new threat over their signing of another French youngster.

The Guardian says Chelsea face a second legal threat over allegations of poaching young players, this time concerning the move of an 11-year-old to Stamford Bridge. ASPTT Marseille, the French club who saw Jérémy Boga switch to west London last October, are consulting lawyers over whether to make a fresh complaint to Fifa.

Following Fifa's imposition of a transfer ban until January 2011 over Chelsea's illegal recruitment of the teenage forward Gaël Kakuta from Lens, ASPTT Marseille will take legal advice on Tuesday to discuss the case of Boga, who had spent five years with the amateur team.
