Ground sharing with Liverpool is a possibility, admits Everton chief

EVERTON chief executive Robert Elstone says the club would be willing to ground share with rivals Liverpool after plans for a new &pound;400m stadium development at Kirkby were rejected.<br /><br />The Toffees had hoped to join forces with Tesco to build a new 50,000-seater stadium and shopping complex, but the idea was quashed by Communities and Local Government Secretary John Denham.<br /><br />It has now opened up the possibility of the Merseyside pair agreeing to share a ground with Liverpool&rsquo;s plans to build a new stadium at Stanley Park being hit by financial problems.<br /><br />Indeed, Elstone admitted: &ldquo;It&rsquo;s certainly one of the options that we will need to cover. A shared stadium is perhaps an option if it&rsquo;s affordable.&rdquo;
