Despite not being picked for the redevelopment of the Battersea Power Station adjacent to the River Thames in London, Chelsea FC has revealed pictures showing its plans for the site.
The designs show a three-tiered stadium whose west stand is actually integrated into the side of the grade II listed Power Station, with its four iconic white towers visible towering above the stadium.
It was recently announced the Malaysian consortium SP Setia and Sime Darby's bid of £400 million to develop a multi-use scheme on the banks of the River Thames had been accepted and that they have entered into an agreement with the site's administrators Ernst and Young.
However, Chelsea is refusing to give up hope of developing the site.
"We do not know if those negotiations will be successful or not," the club said in a statement.
"We firmly believe our proposals could address the unique challenges presented by the site."
