Liverpool are now looking to redevelop the Anfield Road stand as they explore the possibility of increasing the capacity of their ground to 60,000.

Following the Main stand’s completion last summer, the second phase of the redevelopment process would cost around £40million to £45million and provide around 5,000 extra seats, report the Liverpool Echo.

Liverpool have had the planning permission put in place for Anfield Road since 2014.

The general three-year time frame would have been due to expire in September this year, but it has emerged that the club now actually have until August 2019 before their planning permission is due to cease.

When Liverpool first put in the application for the Main Stand to Liverpool City Council they also outlined planning permission for Anfield Road as well.

As they went through the construction process, a number of changes were made, with the last one coming in August 2016 so the three years actually started from that point.

The Reds Owners, Fenway Sports Group always intended to wait until the first phase was completed before making a decision on any further redevelopments to the ground.
