Barcelona mark end of transfer ban by registering 77 new players

Barcelona must have been getting huge transfer withdrawal syndrome in the months during which they were forbidden from registering new players.

With the ban on new registrations coming to an end, summer arrivals Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal are now eligible to turn out for the first team.

But they aren't the only new additions to the club's books, as a further 75 (seventy-five!) players can now call themselves Blaugranes.

The Daily Mirror report that the club have also completed the registration of Lee Seung-Woo, the South Korean star of last summer's Under-17 World Cup.

Many of the players will join Barcelona's youth set-up, including Daniel Tristan Gudjohnsen, the son of former Barça forward Eidur.

Barcelona were prevented from registering new players in the last two transfer windows, as a sanction relating to earlier transfers of players under the age of 18.
