Bruce Buck is to stand down as chairman of Premier League club Chelsea following its sale by Roman Abramovich to a US consortium led by Todd Boehly.

American lawyer Buck will depart on June 30 having agreed to stay on to oversee the £4.25bn ($5.24bn) sale process forced upon Abramovich after he was sanctioned in March by the UK government for his close links to Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Buck will continue to work for the club as an advisor.
