The 19-year-old has featured in two matches so far this term but both were substitute appearances and amounted to just 11 minutes on the pitch.
City received plenty of interest in Foden last season from bottom half Premier League clubs as well as two unnamed Bundesliga outfits.
The teenager scored twice for England’s U21s in their 2-0 win against Kosovo this week and City would not be shy of suitors should they opt to get Foden more game time elsewhere.
However, like last season, Guardiola once again rebuffed the idea as he feels Foden will benefit more from another season at the Etihad.
Foden is viewed as David Silva’s long-term successor and the Spaniard has confirmed that this will be his last season at the club.
Silva had been in talks to extend until 2021 and a two-year deal may well have resulted in Foden leaving the club on a season-long loan.
But Guardiola wants Foden to be ready to make the position his own next season and www8.sale-north-face.org has been told the Spaniard has a ‘clear plan’ to give the 19-year-old more opportunities.
His first start of the season could come away at Shakhtar Donetsk next week, when Silva is expected to be rested.
The Carabao Cup also resumes later this month with City set to take on Preston and Foden will be tested once again in the domestic cup competitions.
