Glenn Hoddle claims that a quota system of foreign players may be needed in the Premier League to help English players develop.

Glenn Hoddle has hinted that a quota system of foreign players may be needed in the Premier League in order to help the England team become more successful.

The former England manager has been appointed to the Football Association Commission, which will aim to improve all aspects of the English game.

"The rules have got to change in the short term," Hoddle told Sky Sports News. "We have to help the England manager to have a better base over the next two or three years to get the experience that these players need in our top league.

"Sixty-eight per cent [of players] of the Premier League [are not eligible to play for England] at this moment in time and getting worse over the coming years - if we don't do anything about it - is too much.

"We have to be ruthless in this. We have to be thinking about English, English and English again."

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has praised the appointment of Hoddle to the FA commission.
