Torino set to sign England goalkeeper

 

 Football News 24/

Serie A side Torino are set to announce the loan signing of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart on Wednesday.

The FA gave Hart permission to leave the England camp on Monday so he could travel to Italy for a medical.

Hart has been told by new City manager Pep Guardiola that he is free to leave.

The 29-year-old was photographed in Turin on Tuesday and the deal is now set to be completed before the end of Transfer Deadline day.

Once the deal is confirmed Hart will rejoin the England squad for Sunday's first 2018 World Cup qualifying match in Slovakia.

Hart is yet to feature in the Premier League under Guardiola, who has signed Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, 33, from Barcelona.

Officials at the club have vowed to help Hart "find the best solution" in order to keep his inter­national place. City are paying some of Hart's wages to allow him to move to Serie A for the season, though the amount is not known.
