PAPER CHASE

Get the latest rumors as the biggest clubs try to bolster their rosters.

Chelsea complained about Clattenburg's "inappropriate language" to Mikel in the wake of a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United in October.

A subsequent Football Association investigation cleared the official, who said it was "truly frightening" to think his career could have been jeopardised.

Chelsea later expressed "regret" at their handling of the complaint and, six months on, Clattenburg will take charge of their Premier League game against Swansea.
