Recently, Sheffield City Council said of proposals to close Don Valley Stadium:
These are extraordinarily difficult times and we have said that we will have to look at tough budget options because of the devastating Government cuts to public spending and local government.
We have said all along that we have to consider all options and Don Valley Stadium is one of the bigger options on the table.
I want to make it clear that no decisions have been made and when we are in a position to confirm our spending decisions we will do so.
A decision on the future of the stadium will be made later today.
