MADRID, January 5- Barcelona coach Josep Guardiola Monday ruled out signing new players during the mid-season transfer window, despite the absence of key players during the African Nations Cup.
"As far as I know, we are not thinking about it," he told a news conference in Barcelona.
He rejected the idea of boosting the midfield while Ivorian Yaya Toure and Mali’s Seydou Keita are on international duty in the African Nations Cup in Angola this month.
"In midfield, I am well served," he said.
Guardiola said he would give the chance to younger players from the reserve team during the tournament.
In 2009, Barca won a record six titles, including the European Champions League, Spanish league and the World Club Championship.
They currently lead the Primera Liga, unbeaten after the first 16 games of the season, with a two-point lead over arch rivals Real Madrid.
