Swansea City have announced plans to increase the capacity of their Liberty Stadium by more than 12,000 seats in another reflection of the boom in Welsh football.

The stadium currently holds 20,500 with Swansea submitting plans to the city's council for an increased capacity of 33,000.

They will be joined in the Premier League next season by rivals Cardiff, who have won promotion back to the top flight after a 51-year absence.
