Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart joins Torino FC


Joe Hart has landed in Italy as his loan move to Torino edges closer to completion.

The Manchester City goalkeeper was collected by the Serie A club’s private jet earlier on Tuesday before being whisked off to Turin.

Hart, who has been left out in the cold by new City manager Pep Guardiola, was accompanied by agent David Manasseh and will have a medical prior to signing a season-long deal.

The Italian side have agreed to pay around £55,000 of the stopper’s £135,000-a-week salary during his stay on the continent.

Hart sought a move away from the Etihad Stadium after being told he would not feature for Guardiola.

The 29-year-old had fallen to third in the City pecking order behind new recruit Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero, with Guardiola keen on having goalkeepers who are more comfortable with ball at feet.
