The possibility of signing new players to Manchester City in the January window has been ruled out by Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola said Manchester City will not bring in new faces for the team, effectively ruling out buying a short-term replacement for the injured Benjamin Mendy.

Guardiola believes his squad is strong enough to get through to the end of the season, despite the injury absences of Mendy, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and back-up goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Belgian playmaker De Bruyne and Portuguese midfielder Silva are likely to be available for the Premier League leaders within the next 10 days but Mendy will be out for up to 12 weeks after having surgery on meniscus damage in his left knee.

Asked whether he might be tempted to sign a replacement for Mendy in January, Guardiola said: “No. We are not going to spend anything (in January). I am so happy with the squad, people are coming back, so no.”

Guardiola’s comments also signal that any move for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong will wait until the end of the season.

De Jong, who has been heavily linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium, is understood to be the leading long-term candidate to replace Fernandinho in the City midfield.
