Chelsea have categorically denied attempting to rig October's vote over the future of the Stamford Bridge freehold.

A report has named people who allegedly bought a number of shares in Chelsea Pitch Owners (CPO) ahead of last year's ballot to decide whether the Blues could buy back the land beneath their current home. It was claimed these individuals had links to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and club directors, something that had long been alleged.

However, a club spokesman said on Thursday: "As we have previously stated, when approached by people asking how they can help, we responded that they should vote in favour of the motion if they have shares, or buy shares and vote in favour of the motion. We categorically deny any allegations of wrongdoing against the club or anyone connected to the club."
