The Russian had his assets seized by the British government over his links with Vladimir Putin following the invasion of Ukraine.

Chelsea were granted a license to operate by the British government until May 31.

Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Boehly, 46, had already PASSED the Prem’s owner and directors test.

Now the £4.25bn deal has moved a step closer to coming to fruition after receiving the green light from Premier League bosses.

A Prem spokesman said: “The Board has applied the Premier League’s Owners’ and Directors’ Test (OADT) to all prospective Directors, and undertaken the necessary due diligence.

“The members of the Consortium purchasing the club are affiliates of the Clearlake Capital Group, L.P., Todd Boehly, Hansjorg Wyss and Mark Walter.

“Chelsea FC will now work with the relevant Governments to secure the necessary licences to complete the takeover.”

That could still be a sticking point with the Prem statement adding: “The purchase remains subject to the Government issuing the required sale licence and the satisfactory completion of the final stages of the transaction.”

Government sources suggested yesterday that Whitehall approval was close but that there remained significant “hurdles” with the green light from Europe.

Abramovich, who holds a Portuguese passport, is also on the EU sanctions list.
