West Ham decide against Hart stay

West Ham United have decided against signing Joe Hart on a permanent deal from Manchester City, according to the Metro.

The England international moved to the London Stadium on a season long loan deal last summer, with the Hammers agreeing to pay half the player’s wages.

The switch followed a year-long stint in Italy with Torino after Hart was deemed surplus to requirements by Citzens’ boss Pep Guardiola.

Prior to the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager’s arrival at the Etihad Stadium, Hart had racked up just shy of three hundred and fifty appearances in all competitions for City, helping them to two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup.

Internationally he has been capped seventy-five times for his country and is far from certain from starting for the Three Lions at the World Cup finals in Russia with Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland also in the running to be selected as first choice for the tournament.
