Pep reveals Silva's replacement

English Premier League

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed who will replace David Silva, with the veteran midfielder set to leave at the end of the season.

Silva confirmed before the start of this campaign, that it will be his last in the English top flight as he could make a return to Spain.

While a number of attacking players have been linked with the Citizens over the past few months, Guardiola insists they already have a replacement in the squad.

Phil Foden has seen a lot more game time in recent weeks and he is expected to fill the void left the 2010 World Cup winner.

"Phil is an incredible player but he still has things to improve," Guardiola said, as per Sky Sports.

"Sometimes it takes time to understand exactly what he has to do, sometimes you have to be patient.

"But David is going to leave this season and we are not going to buy any player in his position because we have Phil.

"We trust Phil. If we didn't believe in him we might go to the market to replace David, but we have Phil."
