    Leicester City's King Power StadiumLeicester City currently have the 13th biggest capacity in the Premier League

    Leicester City have announced plans to increase the capacity of their King Power Stadium by 8,000 seats to 40,000.

    The Foxes will share plans, which include other "significant developments to the surrounding area", in August before a public consultation.

    If approved, their ground would become the 10th largest among current Premier League sides.

    Leicester won the FA Cup last season and finished fifth in the Premier League.

    They were shock Premier League champions in 2015-16, when they had an average league attendance of 32,021.

    The plans for the increased capacity would see 8,000 seats added to the East Stand.

    "In addition to the increase in capacity, preliminary plans will include a 220-room hotel and a multi-purpose event and entertainment arena," said the club.

    "There are also proposals for a new Leicester City retail space, residential and commercial space, and multi-storey car parking facilities – enhancements to the site that can further the evolution of both the football club and the city."
