Pep Guardiola has backed Manchester City's plans to amend the transfer deadline so Premier League clubs can still buy foreign players until the end of August.

Sportsmail revealed that City tabled the proposal at a shareholders' meeting on Thursday, and it was well received by other clubs.

Pep Guardiola has supported his club's stance over a proposal to amend the transfer deadline

There is discontent over the earlier deadline currently in place because it gives foreign teams several weeks to buy players from Premier League clubs who cannot replace them.

City hope their proposal will redress that imbalance while ensuring players still cannot move between Premier League clubs once the competition has kicked off.

Asked about it on Friday, Guardiola said: 'It's a good idea. I like to finish the window the day before the season, there may be a solution but we are at a disadvantage to other teams in Europe.

English clubs have faced a battle to keep stars like Christian Eriksen from foreign clubs

'I would not like at the start of the season, still three weeks open where three four or five players maybe coming, when you are playing for points.

'We won the last Premier League by just one point. All the managers believe the same: start at the same as the people we work with.

'The rumours come and players believe they want to be sold and that's not good.' 

The plans will be discussed further at the next meeting in November with a final vote expected in February. Eleven clubs would need to vote for a change in the rules for the new deadline to be implemented.
