Anfield club risk angering council further.
Liverpool have been granted a further extension on their decision to build a new stadium on Stanley Park.
A deadline was set in July by Liverpool City Council for the Reds to make an announcement by the end of the month.
But the Anfield club have refused to be rushed into deciding if they will take up the 999-year lease that would allow them to build a new ground.
Liverpool have already been granted planning permission but the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, are keen on exploring other options.
One idea includes revamping and expanding Anfield but permission to do this could be too tricky and expensive to get.
A new stadium on Stanley Park would require Liverpool to find a partner to facilitate a lucrative naming rights deal.
Council leader Joe Anderson had warned in July that the club’s delaying of an announcement was ‘very frustrating’.
But talks have been on-going between the two parties and the council have been reassured that progress is being made.
Meanwhile midfielder Luca Leiva admits the 2-1 win over Wolves last Saturday was important to keep confidence high amongst the squad.
“It was an important win, especially after the defeat against Spurs,” the Brazilian said.
“It was a heavy defeat at Spurs and it was important to win in the Carling Cup and get three points in the Premier League which gives us chance to be close to the top four.
“Of course against Spurs everyone could see the situation of the game when we lost two men and it is always difficult to come back.
“Against Stoke we didn’t deserve to lose because we played very good football but when you have two defeats in a row the confidence gets low.
“We spoke before the game against Brighton that we needed to win, get back on track and go into the next round and come into this game with confidence and win and that is what happened.”
