Manchester City outcast closing in on £4m Prem switch

Date published: Friday 3rd August 2018 7:27

Manchester City outcast Joe Hart is set to complete a surprise move to Burnley, according to reports.

The goalkeeper is keen to move on from the Etihad Stadium having fallen completely out of favour under Pep Guardiola, and The Sun and Goal both claim he could be on his way to Sean Dyche’s side.

Burnley have a goalkeeping dilemma on their hands, with regular stoppers Tom Heaton and Nick Pope both out injured. Anders Lindegaard deputised in their Europa League qualifying win over Aberdeen last night.

Hart, 31, could be the answer to their concerns, and it is believed he will undergo a medical with the Turf Moor club tonight.

Hart has spent the last two seasons on loan away from City (at Torino and West Ham), but is now set to complete a permanent departure before his contract runs out next year.

Burnley could spend £4m on the player, who was denied a space in England’s World Cup squad in favour of Pope.
