Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has dismissed claims the Premier League's home grown rule will improve the quality of English players.
From next season, each club must include at least eight "home-grown" players in a 25-man squad, although the rule does not require that those players are English-born, only that they have spent at least three years at the club before the age of 21.
Allardyce believes this does not go far enough, but the Premier League points out that it would be impossible to cap the number of foreign players since it would contravene European laws governing the freedom of movement.
"[The] home-grown players [rule] is not the answer, because they can all be foreigners," Allardyce said. "It's British players that we want to develop.
"There is only the FA that can be totally responsible for all the football in this country and they have to take the bull by the horns and make sure we produce the players we've not been producing for over ten years now."
