Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has ruled out making any new signings in the January transfer window.

"We will decide on that situation at the end of the season," Guardiola said.

There has been some surprise at veteran Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho being deployed in defence this season.

It will not prompt Guardiola to strengthen his squad in the transfer window, though.

Although Fernandinho has spent all his career as a midfielder - including more than six years and 250 appearances at City - Guardiola reacted tersely when he was asked why the Brazilian was used in defence more often than Stones and Otamendi, who cost a combined £79.5m.

City, who play Burnley on Tuesday, have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven games and are 11 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

With City having failed to buy a replacement for skipper Vincent Kompany in the summer, lost Aymeric Laporte to injury and opted not to play Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones together in any game since September, central defence appears to be a clear area of weakness.
