PFA chief Gordon Taylor agrees with what FA chairman Greg Dyke said about home-grown players in the Premier League.

Gordon Taylor has backed FA chairman Greg Dyke over his recent comments regarding the future of English football.

Dyke recently called for a revision of the home-grown players rule, among other things, as he outlined plans to help England win the World Cup in 2022.

The head of the Professional Footballers' Association has agreed with the aim of having more English players in the Premier League, and says that every country in Europe should use the same idea.

"Throughout the world, and of course in England, there should be a duty to the next generation," Taylor told PA.

"Their aspirations to reach the top level should become a reality if they are good enough and not remain a dream. The current 'home-grown' rules are just paying lip service to the idea - they don't have any real impact.

"I believe there should be four home-grown players in every starting eleven, and it should apply at least in Europe, but ideally across the world. FIFA and UEFA have to address this along with us in England."

England manager Roy Hodgson said today that he was concentrating on the national side's next two games, rather than Dyke's ideas.
