Nightmare two years
Joe Hart is set to finally leave Manchester City permanently after two years in limbo with spells on loan at both Serie A side Torino and West Ham.
The Englishman’s fall from grace has been well documented and it’s safe to say it’s been a nightmare two years for the shot-stopper.
The player was first told that he would play no part in Pep Guardiola’s team at City due to his distribution and his overall ability.
That lead the goalkeeper to look for a new adventure and that came in the form of a loan spell abroad to get out of the limelight.
That ended up being a pretty average long spell and Torino were unable to afford him following the deal anyway.
That then lead to another loan deal but this time with Premier League side West Ham.
David Moyes’ Hammers had a shocking season and were under real threat of being relegated at times last season.
Hart didn’t cover himself in glory either, with West Ham seemingly deciding against moving for him permanently.
Now, Burnley have decided to take a punt on the former England number one.
That is because reports this week, one from the Mirror, has claimed that he is set for a £4million move to Burnley.
The player is said to be ‘on the brink’ of a move and will likely compete with another England goalkeeper, Nick Pope, for the no.1 spot.
Hart will be hoping to finally find the club that will put their trust in him as he enters the later stage of his career.
Joe Hart having medical at Burnley this evening. Paperwork still to be done. Three-year deal and big paycut. Fee around £4m and City would be due money based on Burnley’s performance in EL and PL. All sides very happy if it comes off apparently.
