Joe Hart completes £4m Burnley transfer and joins as club’s new No1 keeper

JOE HART has completed his move to Burnley.

Ritescore revealed last week the 31-year-old had undergone a medical at Turf Moor ahead of a £4million move from Manchester City.

And the final touches to the deal have now been completed to allow Hart to leave the club after 12 years at the Etihad Stadium.


Hart has taken the opportunity Sean Dyche has offered of starting the season as his first-choice goalkeeper following injuries to Nick Pope and Tom Heaton.

Pope is out long-term and Heaton has a calf problem, prompting Dyche to move for Hart ahead of Sunday’s Premier League opener at Southampton.

Pope and Heaton edged out Hart for a place in the England squad for their World Cup run to the semi-finals, with Gareth
Southgate naming Heaton as a standby.

Hart’s move to Burnley gives him the opportunity to fight for a way back into Southgate’s plans.

He spent last year on loan at West Ham, though the Hammers opted not to sign him permanently.

Torino took him on loan the previous year after Pep Guardiola decided he was not part of his plans.


Burnley have also added Ben Gibson in a £15million move from Middlesbrough, with the centre-back also hoping to earn
a Three Lions recall.
