Manchester boss Pep Guardiola has ruled out the possibility of the Premier League Champions signing anyone in January.

The Citizens have been linked with a few players in the last few weeks, including wolves Rueben Neves.

And with Benjamin Mendy set to miss 10 to 12 weeks through injury, City were expected to replace him.

But the Catalan insists he’d give other players in the team opportunities to play till the end of the season,

“No. In January, no window,” he said when asked about winter arrivals.

“No no. We are not going to spend anything. I am so happy with the squad, people are coming back [from injury] so no, no.”

When asked if having a settled squad gives City an edge, the former Barcelona and Bayern coach added.

“Yeah it’s much much much better, of course.

“When we created the squad at the beginning of the season [the idea] was not to go to the January [window] except if we have problems.

“I have a deep squad and a lot of players who cannot play although I trust them a lot. They believe I don’t like them but that is not true. I trust a lot in all the players, all of them.

“It’s a joy to be with them but it is what it is, when there are some injuries another one is going to play. If not you have a few players in the academy that maybe are going to help us in a few moments or few minutes.

“We are not going to go to January in the market, no way.”
