Chelsea may be having a torrid time on the football field as they look to re-ignite their season by doing a feasibility study on building a new stadium at at Battersea Power Station.
The Blues, who still have to convince the supporters to sell the freehold of Stamford Bridge before they can move have appointed Mike Hussey, chief executive of Almacantar, as their development partner and asked architects Kohn Pedersen Fox to come up with a plan for 55,000-60,000-seater stadium on the power station site.
A Chelsea insider said
"In the past, we've talked to various people with interests in Battersea Power Station, but we haven't had any substantive discussions with anyone regarding that site for several months.
"However, in light of current developments, we now think it prudent to look again at the feasibility and potential for the BPS site to be developed for a football stadium.
"We have made no decision to leave Stamford Bridge, and we continue to discuss with the local council any economically viable options to expand the the Bridge, but we will continue to investigate various options close to Stamford Bridge."
