Torino sign new No. 1 keeper to rule out Joe Hart return

Joe Hart: Could make Prem return

Torino have signed Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu on a free transfer, therefore ending any chances of Joe Hart returning to Turin. 

Hart was a regular for the Italian club last season, having been shown the door by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola in favour of £17m signing Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero.

The England international has been at City since 2006, but looks set to be out of Guardiola’s plans again, after the club announced the £35m signing of Ederson from Benfica earlier this summer.

Sirigu spent the first half of last season on loan at Sevilla, but having made only three appearances for the club he joined Osasuna in January for the second half of the campaign.

Sirigu has 17 Italy caps to his name, and will link up with Torino boss Sinisa Mihajlovic in a bid to try and get his career back on track.

For Hart, the future looks uncertain. With the World Cup taking place next summer, he will need regular game time in order to convince England manager Gareth Southgate he is worthy of a place on the plane.
