The architect behind plans for Everton's new dockside stadium has revealed that he hopes to include a home end inspired by the Yellow Wall at Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund.

The Liverpool Echo reported that Dan Meis, speaking at a forum with Everton fans, said he wanted to create a similar focal point to that at BVB's Westfalenstadion.

Everton's new stadium will be built at Bramley-Moore Dock, replacing their current Goodison Park home.

"We're planning on creating a very large home end in the south stand of the stadium which should be similar to Dortmund's Yellow Wall, Meis said.

"Depending on the final stadium capacity, the stand will hold 12,000-15,000 fans and we also want to include a concourse that will look back at the city, immediately by the home end -- that would be very cool."

The architect has said he aims to design the "greatest home ground in English football" and is consulting with supporters as the plans are drawn up.

He has also said that some elements of Goodison, including vintage seating, could be incorporated into the new ground.
