LFC are focusing on the designs created by Manchester-based firm AFL - the company which designed the club's training facility at Melwood - plans first made when Liverpool FC were under the stewardship of ex chairman David Moores.
It is understood that scrapping the plans of the former American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett in favour of the original option has been the focus of Fenway Sports Group, the current owners, for well over a year.
Planning permission for the first set of plans was granted by Liverpool City Council in 2004 and so with the AFL plans now revived the club do not need to seek the green light a second time.
Given the AFL designs were drawn up some time ago, Liverpool have "tweaked" the plans to bring the new stadium as up to date as possible but while staying within the parameters which gave them the go-ahead from the local authority in the first place.
The stadium design plans of the Hicks and Gillett-era were pulled together by American firm HKS, but with the takeover of FSG those plans were shelved as Liverpool continue to work towards the possibility of moving away from their beloved Anfield.
However, the club is continuing to look at the option of staying where they are with the development of the AFL scheme in Stanley Park running alongside the prospect of a refurbishment of Anfield - but such a decision is proving increasingly difficult, so the main focus of the club remains a new build.
Liverpool FC remain in constant dialogue with the City Council and are making "reasonable progress" in finding a major brand to take up the naming rights option of any new stadium.
A new build would cost in the region of £300m and given the current financial climate the 60,000 seater stadium is considered the most appropriate decision at this stage, leaving the HKS plans of the doomed previous regime out in the cold.
