Trevor Brooking insists England need to increase the amount of home-grown talent playing Premier League football for the new national manager to have a greater chance of achieving success.

Brooking, the Football Association's director of football development, is one of the four board members who will choose Fabio Capello's successor. He is reluctant to comment on how that search is developing, but admits the bright talent at Under-16 to Under-19 level needs more top-flight football to flourish on the international stage.

"People say more young home-grown players are now making their mark in the Premier League but unfortunately it is a bit misleading because it is still the 35% figure for starting XI's," said Brooking.
