West Ham reject chance to sign Joe Hart from City

West Ham have decided against signing Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart this summer, Metro.co.uk understands.

The England stopper joined the Hammers on a season-long loan last summer after West Ham agreed to pay half of his £120,000-a-week wages.

Hart spent the previous campaign with Serie A side Torino but opted to move back to the Premier League to boost his chances of earning a spot in England’s World Cup squad this summer.

However, Hart’s endured a difficult campaign in east London and has managed just 19 appearances in the league after David Moyes turned to Adrian following his appointment at the London Stadium.

Manchester City included an option to buy agreement in their deal with West Ham but the Hammers have opted not to take up the opportunity.

Metro.co.uk understands the Hammers also plan on letting Adrian leave the club and want a new No.1 to takeover in the summer.

Hart signed a new five-year deal with City in 2014 but he enters the final year of his contract this summer.

Pep Guardiola signed Claudio Bravo as Hart’s replacement in 2016 and made Ederson the most expensive goalkeeper of all time when the Brazilian signed for £35m from Benfica last summer.

Hart will speak with City this summer to seek clarification over his summer and he’s likely to be told to find a new club.
