Birmingham City are considering redeveloping part of St Andrew's ground to increase the capacity to around 46,000 as an alternative to moving to a new stadium.

City have been looking at the possibility of moving away from their current home for several years and remain in talks about potential projects with Birmingham city council. But their vice-chairman Peter Pannu admitted rebuilding the Garrison Lane stand to significantly raise the capacity from the current 30,000 was also an option.

Pannu said: "We are considering pulling down our old stand. For us to build this extended capacity, the indication from our experts is that it would be a size increase to 45,000, 46,000."
