The government is set to accept Chelsea's takeover in the coming weeks after gaining legal assurances that Roman Abramovich will not profit from the sale, allowing them to sanction the £4.25 billion deal.
The Premier League said in a statement: "The Board has applied the Premier League's Owners' and Directors' Test (OADT) to all prospective directors and completed the requisite due diligence."
