Manchester City's plans to increase the capacity of Etihad will gain approval.
City's plans to extend the Etihad Stadium's capacity by more than 14,000 seats are set to get the green light.
City had plotted to add 6,250 seats at either end of the stadium and a further 2,000 around the ground, elevating the capacity from 47,620 to 62,170, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The plans were already submitted to the city's council planning commission and a report released on Thursday recommended that they are approved. If the building work goes ahead, Manchester will have the two biggest club stadiums in the country.
