Manchester City are facing a massive homegrown headache.

The Sunday Express says City have big concerns about meeting their home-grown quota next season.

The quota means that Premier League sides must include eight home-grown players in their 25-man squads.

But with the futures of Micah Richards and Joleon Lescott firmly up in the air, the Citizens want to bring in more players that meet the requirements of the rule.

Add in the fact that neither Scott Sinclair - currently on loan at West Brom - or Jack Rodwell has made much of an impression at the Etihad and City suddenly have a problem on their hands.

The problem is exacerbated by the fact that Gareth Barry is expected to join Everton permanently when his loan deal expires in the summer.
