Noble defends Hart as goalkeeper nears West Ham switch

After being demoted from his starting role at Manchester City by Pep Guardiola a year ago, and spending the previous campaign on loan at Torino, options seemed to be fast closing for the England goalkeeper.

England goalkeeper Joe Hart will have a medical on Monday before completing a season-long loan deal with West Ham.

West Ham are now at a pre-season training camp in Austria as preparations build for the new season, which for them starts on 13 August against Manchester United at Old Trafford, and skipper Mark Noble believes Hart has been mistreated in recent years.

Hart, 30, still has a contract with City until 2019 but has seen Guardiola sign Claudio Bravo and the Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica since his arrival as manager a year ago.

The England goalkeeper, who has won 71 caps for the Three Lions, could make his move to the Irons permanent at the end of the season.

Although Willy Caballero left the Etihad Stadium as a free agent and has joined Chelsea, Guardiola has since signed the Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica for £34.7 million (€39.6m).

Hart, 30, had hoped to secure a permanent transfer from City, but The Guardian reported he had decided a season-long in the EPL would at least boost his England selection chances ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. Initial loan. Good move for him I think.

Joe Hart medical with West Ham tomorrow.

The addition of Hart to the East London club will be a welcome addition considering that Adrian and Darren Randolph failed to impress during the opportunities given to them last season.
