West Ham are reportedly interested in signing out-of-favour Manchester City keeper Joe Hart on loan, according to a report from the Daily Telegraph.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper was shipped out on loan to Torino last season after failing to impress Pep Guardiola with his footwork.

There was hope for Hart however when summer signing Claudio Bravo failed to make an impact which lead to many believing Hart may still have had a future at the Etihad. However, with the signing of Ederson from Benfica, it looks as though Hart’s time at City has come to an end.

So far, West Ham are the only club that have taken interest in the player but are only willing to take Hart on a loan move due to Hart’s wage demands whereas City would rather it be a permanent deal for the player.

At the moment, it is not clear where Hart will be playing next season and it is sad to see such a long-serving and loyal servant to the club not being given a chance to prove his worth to Guardiola.

The only thing that is clear in this transfer saga is that Hart will not be playing his football at Manchester City next season but whichever club he joins, he will make a fine and valuable addition to their squad.
