- Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart set to join Burnely in a permanent deal this summer
- He spent last term on loan at fellow EPL club West Ham United
- The 31-year-old won two Premier League titles with the Citizens after joining them in 2006
Premier League side Burnley are reportedly set to sign England international Joe Hart in a £4 million deal this summer.
The 31-year-old, who joined Manchester City from Shrewsbury Town in 2006 spent last season on loan at West Ham United.
And with the summer transfer window set to close in about a week, the shot-stopper is said to be on his way to Turf Moor to undergo a medical ahead of the proposed move.
According to the Sun, the Clarets' boss Sean Dyche is desperate to land a keeper with his two goalkeepers, Nick Pope and Tom Heaton injured.
Pope was said to have suffered a shoulder injury earlier this week and has been ruled out for a number of months.
And signing Hart will be ideal for the Turf Moor outfit who are participating in both domestically and in European competitions next term.
Meanwhile, reports from the club reveal that the deal might be announced this evening in an intriguing move for both parties.
He won the Premier League title twice with the club during his reign as the number one for the Citizens but fell out of favour with Pep Guardiola at the club at his arrival.
The 31-year-old has been sent on loan to Torino and West Ham, but will seal a permanent deal with Burnley this summer.
Surprisingly, he travelled with Man City to take part in their US tour, although he was unable to change the opinion of Guardiola.
Hart had also been linked with Chelsea, Manchester United and Nice - but it would appear Burnley have won the race.
NAIJ.com previously reported that FA Cup champions Chelsea are linked with a shocking move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart as Thibaut Courtois replacement.
SunSport reports that the Blues Chelsea are risking the wrath of Blues supporters after listing the £5 million out-of-favour Manchester City shot-stopper, who could not make the Three Lions squad to the just concluded 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia after a miserable loan spell at West Ham.
Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois the report suggests in on the wish list of the Los Blancos and has not penned a new deal with the West London side as he enters the last 12 months of his Chelsea contract.
