Crystal Palace have confirmed plans to redevelop Selhurst Park that will see the capacity surpass 34,000.

The London Evening Standard reports that the plans will cost in the region of £100 million and the Eagles will not have to move out of the stadium while work is taking place.

Steve Parish eventually wants to see Selhurst Park hold 40,000 and these latest plans are the next step towards that ambition.

Work is due to start over the course of the next 12 months with formal planning permission application set to go ahead next month.

The new-look main stand has been designed by the same architect who helped design the latest developments at Anfield.

Palace have been desperate to improve their stadium ever since their promotion to the top flight but have been seeking extra investment to make it possible.

Now it is down to Roy Hodgson, who must ensure that the new-look Selhurst Park will see Premier League football in it by keeping them afloat this season.
