The Man City stopper has moved to the Serie A side on loan
Torino have today confirmed the signing of Joe Hart on loan.
The Man City keeper has found first-team opportunities hard to come by so far this season and he has reportedly been told by new boss Pep Guardiola that he is free to leave the club, despite being the side’s number one for the last few seasons.
City have gone on to bring in Claudio Bravo from Barcelona, pushing Hart further down the pecking order at the Etihad. Now, he will be able to play on a regular basis in Italy.
Interest from Premier League sides
Several sides had been eager to take the England international on loan, including Everton and Sunderland in the Premier League. However, it is Italian side Torino who have landed the signature of the 29-year old.
As part of the move, City still have to pay some of his wages but officials at the club had claimed they would help Hart keep his England place by securing the best move possible for him and this move could be it.
He could make his debut for the Serie A side in the club’s next game against Atalanta on September 11.
