Manchester City and England goalkeeper Joe Hart has completed a season-long loan move to West Ham according to report from BBC Sports.
The 30-year-old goal tender who was loaned on a season to Italian Serie A side was told by City manager Pep Guardiola that he could find another club after his sojourn in Torino.
Hart had made it known to City that he want to go to West Ham, and the club facilitated that move on a season loan with no option for West Ham to buy the goalkeeper after the one year contract.
Hence, if West Ham wants to buy him at the end of the season, then they will have to bid for him like any other club who may seek the services of Hart.
BBC Sports also reports that “though City have agreed to fund part of Hart’s wages but West Ham are also paying a loan fee, believed to be £4.5m”.
It is expected that Joe Hart, whose contract with City is not due to expire until 2019, will join West Ham’s squad on their pre-season tour of Austria.
Joe Hart has won the Premier League on two occasions with Manchester City, and has earned 71 caps for the England’s national team, but fell out of favour after Pep Guardiola took over as manager.
