Northants considered a move away from Wantage Road in 2013 but dismissed the plan "within minutes", reports BBC Radio Northampton.

A Cricinfo reportexternal-link had suggested the club was looking to relocate, claims denied by chief executive Ray Payne.

BBC Radio Northampton has learned a document was produced under previous management to assess a potential move, but was rejected as unworkable.

Plans included a national stadium with a roof in Northampton's Sixfields area.

However, these plans never reached a formal stage.
