Swansea's new owners keen to expand the team's stadium

Swansea City's new American owners have revealed they are in talks with Swansea council about expanding the club's Liberty Stadium home.

Jason Levien and Steve Kaplan led a consortium which bought a 68% controlling stake in the Swans in July.

The council-owned ground's capacity of 21,000 is the second smallest in the Premier League.

"That is one of the things that is top of our list," Mr Levien told BBC Wales Sport.

Swansea are initially hopeful of expanding the Liberty Stadium's capacity to 33,000, with long-term aspirations of seeing the ground hold up to 40,000.
