Joe Hart has joined West Ham on loan from Man City in £4.5m deal.

The England goalkeeper was on loan at Torino in Serie A last season after being frozen from Pep Guardiola’s squad.

Speaking about his new destination, the 30 year-old goalkeeper told West Ham TV, “It’s important for me to play football and to get the opportunity to come here and play is absolutely awesome. To be playing in the Premier League for a big club like West Ham, I’m really looking forward to the season. I’ve always loved the club. I think you’ll struggle to find anyone, apart from the direct opposing fans around London, who doesn’t love the club. It’s got something about it, it’s got a lot history and I’ve always loved playing against West Ham.”

He is expected to join West Ham’s squad on their pre-season tour of Austria. Joe Hart has kept 119 clean sheets in the PL, only 3 English goalkeepers have kept more; D.James (169), D.Seaman (140) & N.Martyn (137)
