CHELSEA still plan to build their new stadium - but will not do so until "economic conditions improve".
The London club's planning permission for the redevelopment of Stamford Bridge is set to expire next week.
Chelsea got approval from the council to go ahead with the build back in January 2017.
The application will have to start all over again if the council do not receive confirmation from the club by March 31.
Frank Lampard's side have now released a statement on their club website to give fans an update.
It read: "Chelsea Football Club acknowledges that the planning permission we obtained for a new stadium expires on 31st March 2020.
"We re grateful to all our fans and stakeholders, especially Hammersmith & Fulham Council, for their patience and understanding in the matter.
"We will continue to consider our options for a new stadium, should economic conditions improve.
Chelsea had planned to boost Stamford Bridge's capacity from 41,600 to a whopping 60,000.
It was revealed in May 2019 that the designers in charge of the revamp were looking at other possible sites.
Sites including Battersea Power Station, Earls Court, Chelsea Barracks and White City were mentioned.
