A new stadium or the redevelopment of Nottingham's existing City Ground could be on the cards for Nottingham Forest Football Club (NFFC) after the Al Hasawi family acquired the club.

The Kuwaiti businessmen bought the npower Championship club from the family of former owner Nigel Doughty and are aiming for the club to gain promotion to the Premier League.

According to the BBC, Abdulaziz Al-Hasawi revealed that the development of a new ground is a long term ambition but that the current focus would be on the City Ground.

Al Hasawi told the broadcaster: "[A new stadium] is something we are looking at and studying. Our main focus and concern is to renovate and refurbish the existing stadium."

NFFC had announced plans for a new stadium three years ago, with a £100m venue to form part of Nottingham's bid to be included as an English host city for the 2018 World Cup.

However, England was not selected by FIFA to host the tournament.
