ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission and the Missouri Convention and Sports Authority are set to formally announce this week they will not spend $700 million to upgrade the Edward Jones Dome.

This means talks will now focus on a possible new stadium for the Rams. The point man in those negotiations we've learned is Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.

Sources say all talks about a possible new stadium and who will pay for it will be taking place between Nixon and Rams owner Stan Kroenke.

So far though no direct talks between the two have taken place.

The Rams did not have a comment.
