Man City keeper could finally have route out of Etihad
Sunderland are interested in signing Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart on loan, according to Sky Sports.
However, a move to David Moyes’ side would mean a cut in wages for Hart and for the England no.1 to want to go to the Stadium of Light.
It’s thought that Hart would prefer to move to a side playing Champions League football, but with time running out in this window, he only has limited options available to him.
Italian outfits AC Milan and Torino are also interested in the 29-year-old, who appears to have been frozen out of the City picture by new boss Pep Guardiola. He has been starting Willy Caballero in goal in the Premier League and has just signed Claudio Bravo from Barcelona.
All of which leaves Hart facing a season of despair, if he fails to find a new club, either via a permanent signing or loan deal.
Everton boss Ronald Koeman said on Thursday he was not interested in signing Hart, while Sky sources also understand Spanish club Sevilla will not sign the Englishman. Liverpool were also loosely linked but there doesn’t seem to be any concrete interest from them.
