AFC Bournemouth will not be adding new capacity to its ground in time for the next Premier League season.

The club has taken the decision to delay redevelopment plans following a meeting of its board.

A statement from the Cherries blamed "ongoing negotiations with the club's landlord to purchase the stadium".

The club had previously said improving the stadium's size was needed as "demand for tickets far outweighs our current capacity".
