Hart joins Torino from Man City

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

MANCH­ESTER City goal­keeper Joe Hart has joined Serie A side Torino on loan un­til the end of the sea­son, the player’s agent con­firmed yes­ter­day.

The 29-year-old has been out of favour at Manch­ester City since the ar­rival of new man­ager Pep Guardi­ola and dropped to No 3 in the peck­ing or­der be­hind 17 mil­lion pound ($22.23 mil­lion) sign­ing Clau­dio Bravo and Willy Ca­ballero.

Hart’s agent Jonathan Bar­nett told Tut­tosport: “Yes, Joe Hart will play at Torino. It’s done.

“He has said ‘yes’ to the club and now Manch­ester City have given the OK. It’s all true, it’s cer­tain.”

Hart is on in­ter­na­tional duty with Eng­land this week but has been given per­mis­sion to fly to Italy to re­solve his fu­ture with the Bri­tish me­dia re­port­ing that he was due to ar­rive in Turin later on yes­ter­day.

A loan move to Pre­mier League Sun­der­land was also listed among his op­tions in the me­dia but Hart has opted for a new start in Italy, where he will be­come the first English goal­keeper to play in Serie A since the league be­gan in 1929.

Torino thrashed Bologna 5-1 on Sun­day in their lat­est Serie A start and are sev­enth in the stand­ings on three points af­ter two matches. — Reuters
