Liverpool Football Club are planning to leave their Melwood training ground. The club have been at the site in West Derby since the 1950s. A new state of the art training ground will be built at their academy ground in Kirkby. The project would cost around £50m. If the development's approved, it could be completed in two years time.

“We recognise that Melwood has played a significant role in the club’s success and forms an important part of our history. However, the Melwood site is limited in space and is unable to accommodate our longer-term ambitions, which is why we are exploring options on the Academy site.

– Andy Hughes, LFC

A public consultation is being held next month for local residents and businesses to discuss the proposed plans in more detail.
