Fulham confirm that they are planning to extend the capacity of Craven Cottage to 30,000.

Premier League club Fulham have today revealed plans that will see the capacity of Craven Cottage raised to 30,000.

The stadium, which has been the Whites' home since 1896, currently holds 25,700 after several refurbishment projects.

Recent reports had suggested that Fulham were considering a potential ground share with Queens Park Rangers or Chelsea, but chief executive Alastair Mackintosh has confirmed to Press Association Sport that no such discussions have taken place.

"We are confident that a redevelopment will improve the fans' matchday experience, and enhance our corporate offering, whilst remaining sympathetic to the design of this historic ground," said Mackintosh.

"Naturally our core family values, and the tradition of the football club, continue to be at the forefront of everything we do.

"This investment at Craven Cottage demonstrates yet again the chairman's continued ambition to see the club prosper and grow and to continue to compete at this level for many years to come."

As part of the planning process, Fulham will be holding a public exhibition until mid-October.
