Fulham have just one more year in which they are able to continue playing at QPR's Loftus Road ground because of Premier League regulations.

They had hoped to use Stamford Bridge to play there home games on in season 2004-5 but Chelsea have shelved those plans andd it now seems they are considering moving to Crystal Palace.

"We spoke to Fulham two or three weeks ago and they said they must keep their obligation to QPR first, which is right," said Jordan.

"We have a rent clause which escalates when we lose a tenant, which we are doing with Wimbledon.

"Football clubs play one game a week at their ground and you have to be realistic and try to get more money for yourselves.

"Every football club in this country would like to ground-share if they could because it would make economic sense. As it would make sense, why wouldn't I be interested in it?"
