Chelsea could soon be playing in a new home built around a redeveloped Battersea Power Station after confirming they have submitted a bid to buy the 39-acre site.

The Blues announced plans to transform the Grade II* listed building in Wandsworth into "one of the most iconic football stadiums in the world".

The 60,000-seater ground, which would take between three and four years to construct, would include the power station's four chimneys and other aspects of the existing structure as part of the design.
