Kompany wants to lure former Man City teammate to Anderlecht

Date published: Sunday 4th August 2019 8:51

Vincent Kompany is eyeing a shock reunion with Joe Hart at Anderlecht, according to reports.

Kompany and Hart were teammates at Manchester City for the best part of a decade, winning their first two Premier League titles since the Middle Eastern takeover together.

Their paths have diverged since, with Hart spending time on loan at Torino and West Ham before sealing a permanent move to Burnley last summer.

However, the former England number one was overtaken in the pecking order at Turf Moor by Tom Heaton, and despite the 33-year-old’s recent move to Aston Villa, it still appears that Hart will be looking elsewhere for first team football.

Burnley are prepared to listen to offers for Hart, given that they also have Nick Pope and signed Bailey Peacock-Farrell from Leeds this week.

According to the Mirror‘s live transfer blog, Kompany is interested in taking Hart with him to Anderlecht, where he was recently appointed player manager.

Hart would need to accept a pay cut to make the move to Belgium, but Kompany is hoping to lure him with the offer of regular first team football.
