Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright confirms that a partnership with their Merseyside rivals is still possible but there prefers sole tenancy of a site close to Goodison Park

Everton have identified a site close to Goodison Park in their search for a new stadium but a ground-share with Liverpool remains "on the agenda", according to chairman Bill Kenwright.

Both clubs are making plans to leave their current homes, with the Toffees in dialogue with Liverpool City Council over possible options.

Liverpool revealed plans to expand Anfield in collaboration with the council earlier in June but, while Kenwright is eager to move to a site near the club's existing stadium, he indicated that sharing with their Merseyside rivals is still a possibility.

"We've had a couple of meetings with Liverpool and the Council but it is not moving forward at the moment," the Everton chief replied when asked about a possible ground-share by an attendee of Wednesday night's General Meeting of club shareholders.

"I agree with you on the obvious advantages it would bring. We have identified a site close to Goodison and we have a council at the moment who are extremely positive in their desire to help us.

"If we take forward what we're looking at now, I think you would be happier than sharing with the Reds."

Kenwright revealed that there are "two or three" potential sites but that moving to any of them would depend on funding.
