Guardiola rules out new Manchester City signings in January


Pep Guardiola

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed the club will not be making any signings in the January transfer window despite their indifferent start to the Premier League season.

The Citizens are currently 14th on the Premier League table after their eight matches, and trail leaders Tottenham by eight points despite holding a game in hand.

Guardiola's side have only won three league contests, with defeats against Leicester City and Spurs, and draws versus Liverpool, West Ham and Leeds blotting their copybook.

There has been suggestion the Manchester giants will be looking to bolster their squad when the player movement period resumes in a month's time, but Guardiola denies the club will be pursuing reinforcements.

"No, not at all. I have a fantastic team to fight for all the titles," Guardiola told Man City's official website.

The former Barcelona coach's belief in his squad depth was provedtrue by John Stones' performance in the mid-week win over Olympiacos in the Champions League.

The England international has found himself on the periphery of Manchester City's first team for most of the season, but showed Guardiola he has a part to play this campaign.

"The guys who play good, they continue to play," Guardiola said.

"The guys especially at the back who don't make mistakes - everyone makes mistakes - but the guys who don't make mistakes that cost a lot, they have more chance to continue in the team.

"And the guys up front who score goals, they have more chance to continue in the team. I try to judge players in the present. John Stones played very well, and I am especially happy for John because he is a special guy for me.

"We arrived here together, we spent lots of time together, he was injured and had personal issues but now he is settled again. He is confident. He will have chances to show his quality in this team."

Manchester City will attempt to catapult themselves up the Premier League table as they host Burnley at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
