Ron Gourlay has insisted Chelsea's bid to build a new stadium at Battersea Power Station did not mean they had given up on redeveloping Stamford Bridge.

The Blues last week announced ambitious plans to transform Wandsworth's Grade II* listed power station into a 60,000-capacity ground, confirming they had made an offer for the 39-acre site.

The chief executive has claimed no decision had been taken to relocate, revealing the Blues were still exploring whether their home of 107 years could be increased to a 55,000-seat stadium. He said: "What we've all got to do is keep our feet on the ground as far as Battersea is concerned."
