Swansea City announce plans to expand the capacity of the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City have announced plans to expand the capacity of the Liberty Stadium.

The ground can currently hold a total of 20,750 fans, but the Welsh club are keen to add another 12,000 seats.

"It all runs parallel to us still being in the Premier League and it being right for the club," chairman Huw Jenkins told reporters.

"We will have a full application in for the end of March and once that is passed, we will do part of that towards the end of next season, starting with the East Stand.

"If and when the final stage is complete, the stadium will hold 32,000. The first bit, which we plan to do this summer, will take the figure to 22,000 and then it will go up to 27,000 with the first stage of the East Stand, starting near the end of next season and running through the summer."

The Liberty Stadium was opened in 2005.
