< ![CDATA[You've misunderstood the ruling....by quite a bit!
To be 'home-grown' the players have to be elgible for the national team that the league is based in.
Just playing for 5 year in a country doesn't make you home-grown.
All the established players you mentioned are foreign and will always be classed as foreign.]]>
Cesc won’t be eligibile because he won’t even be at Arsenal by the time the ruling comes into effect. He’ll be at a club that wins trophies.
