Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has stressed that the club will not abandon their faith in youth players after their two-window transfer ban was halved by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The Blues are now free to bring new players to Stamford Bridge, and it's expected that Chelsea will prioritise bringing in a new left-back.
But Lampard has insisted that Chelsea won't revert back to their chopping and changing transfer policy, stressing that the club will continue with their development of young players.
"I don't think there's any problem with that. If we're going to try [to make signings] it will be for the improvement of the squad - but if you think we're going to line up Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Reece James and sell them, we're not.
"They're here to stay so the fans will be happy that they can keep that relationship and know that anything we do going forward now will be to try and improve from that base.
Chelsea's transfer kitty is rumoured to be around the £150m mark, with Jadon Sancho, Ben Chilwell and Wilfried Zaha among a number of players already linked with a move to west London. But Lampard insists that he will only look to bring in players with who match his values, insisting that the long-term progression of the club remains the most important thing.
He added: "[We need to consider] the attitude and personality of people we bring in, because we want people who come in to want to work hard and be successful at the club. So that’s where the balance of it becomes really important to me.
