West Ham Sign Hart From Man City

West Ham Sign Hart From Man City

West Ham United have signed England goalkeeper, Joe Hart, on loan from Manchester City.

West Ham made the announcement on their official website on Tuesday.

"West Ham United are delighted to confirm the signing of England’s No1 goalkeeper Joe Hart," West Ham wrote on their website.

"Capped 71 times by his country, two-time Premier League champion Hart joins the Hammers on a season-long loan from Manchester City."

“It's important for me to play football and to get the opportunity to come here and play is absolutely awesome," Hart told West Ham TV.

“To be playing in the Premier League for a big club like West Ham, I'm really looking forward to the season.

"I've always loved the Club. I think you'll struggle to find anyone, apart from the direct opposing fans around London, who doesn't love the Club. It's got something about it, it's got a lot history and I've always loved playing against West Ham.

"We've moved into London Stadium and we've got Slaven in charge who I've spoken to and I've always enjoyed as a manager. He obviously did a good job with Croatia and he's doing a good job here, so to get the opportunity to come here, it wasn't really a hard decision."

Hart relived his time at Torino in the Italian Serie A where he was on loan last season

"It was a fun year and I did enjoy being part of Serie A and part of Torino, but I'm ready to come back and looking forward to being part of this fantastic league again,” he said. 

And on the prospect of facing Manchester City in a pre-season match in Iceland on 4 August, Hart said: “I'd like to think I've obviously left Manchester City on loan this season, but the club as a whole, especially the supporters, have always been fantastic to me.
"I'd never change how I feel about that club, as it'll always be a very special club to me.

“It'll be fun to play against them because I'll be banned when it comes to the actual season, while I'm sure Manchester United will welcome me with open arms if I get the nod and start the season away at Old Trafford.”
