Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has confirmed plans to extend the Liberty stadium.

The Liberty Stadium, Swansea's home since 2005, has a current capacity of 20,520 and expansion would allow club to increase revenue.

"We've got one or two things starting in the summer," Jenkins told BBC Radio Wales.

"We've got one project in the west stand and a couple of other things to raise the capacity to probably around the 22,000 mark for next season. That will be done in readiness for August.

"The main project of increasing the seating in the east and the south and the north stands will probably take place a year later."

"We do things quietly and make sure we do it the right way. But the main priority as always is to stay in the Premier League."
