Manchester United's stadium expansion plans have moved a step closer to fruition after they submitted a formal planning application to Trafford Council.

United intend to fill in both corners of the massive North Stand, which would add a further 7,500 seats, taking Old Trafford's capacity to 75,000, ensuring it maintains its position as the biggest club ground in Britain.

The move, likely to cost around £40million, could generate £7.5million a season and preparatory work, including moving gas and water pipes was already underway even before a feasibility study confirmed the financial merits of the idea.

United will now await the Council's decision, although it is believed to be a formality.

Once permission has been granted, the Red Devils board will decide whether to go ahead with the scheme prior to the main construction contracts being awarded early next year.
