Hammersmith and Fulham Council have refused to concede defeat in their attempt to keep Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, despite the club confirming they had submitted a bid to transform Battersea Power Station into a new stadium.

Chelsea maintain they have yet to decide whether to relocate but they have also insisted it is not economically viable to redevelop Stamford Bridge.

That has been disputed by Hammersmith and Fulham Council, whose deputy leader, Nick Botterill, said on Friday: "We want the Blues to stay at Stamford Bridge and - if it can be done sensibly without negatively affecting local people - increase the ground's capacity so they can retain their position as one of Europe's top clubs."
