Liverpool's managing director Ian Ayre insists progress is being made on a decision about the club's long-term future home with a new stadium and a redevelopment both still under consideration.

Owners Fenway Sports Group are reluctant to move from Anfield to a new build in Stanley Park because of financial implications, with an investment of £300million-plus only delivering an extra 15,000 seats. But Remaining at Anfield has its own problems as expansion would infringe on the 'right to light' homeowners in the surrounding area are entitled to.

"There is progress and we are still in dialogue on both fronts," Ayre told the Liverpool Echo. "We have more dialogue going with the Anfield residents than we ever have, as with other stakeholders in and around Anfield."
