Liverpool Waters for Peel, development director Lindsey Ashworth is optimistic that a deal to have a state-of-the-art stadium at the Northern end of the Liverpool Waters is close to being agreed.
Mr Ashworth told the ECHO: “We're in quite healthy talks with Everton at the moment, so it's not finalised yet. But as Peel and as myself I would love to see a stadium on the waterfront.
“To have this as the anchor at one end of the waterfront, and then you go all the way down towards the ECHO arena... the waterfront would be a visual spectacle.
It is expected that a 'heads-of-terms' agreement will be signed shortly, this agreement is an initial agreement which precedes the signing of a full contract.
