Manchester City goalkeeper signs for Burnley

Manchester City goalkeeper signs for Burnley

Pep Guardiola's arrival effectively signaled the end of Hart's time at the club, with the stopper forced to spend Guardiola's first season on the bench before being farmed out to West Ham on loan last season - a move that didn't work out for club or player.

He also missed out on a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Hart played nearly 350 games for the reigning Premier League champions, establishing himself as number one for club and country, but fell down the pecking order after Pep Guardiola took the helm at City in 2016.

Tom Heaton, who was replaced by Nick Pope last season when a dislocated shoulder kept him out from September to May, seems the more likely to leave, with manager Sean Dyche resigned to the fact that neither would be happy as a long-term reserve. Picture: Manchester City official Facebook page.

The transfer brings an end to Hart's largely successful 12-year stay at City. They need to go on and do their thing and I need to do mine.

Hart will also compete for a first-team spot with club captain and fellow England worldwide Tom Heaton, who is recovering from a calf problem, and Anders Lindegaard.

"I certainly feel a lot of love and appreciation".

After initially gaining further senior experience out on loan at Birmingham City, Blackpool and Tranmere Rovers, Hart was an ever-present in 2011/12 as City won the Premier League title for the first time and ended a 44-year wait to become champions of England.

"Joe Hart's contribution to Manchester City can not be overstated", Al Mubarak said in a statement on Manchester City's website.

Hart, who boasts 75 global caps and two Premier League titles, will wear squad number 20.

"His 12 years at the club has seen him produce some remarkable performances and heart-stopping saves that will live in the memory for a long time to come".
