Bookmakers close markets on Joe Hart as deal is agreed

Bookmakers have pulled their markets on Joe Hart after a deal with West Ham United was agreed.

Manchester City have finalised terms with West Ham over a season-long loan move for the England number one, who has been a long-term target for The Hammers.

TheGamblingTimes.com revealed back in March that West Ham were one of the clubs looking to land Hart, and now they have agreed terms.

Hart – who still has two-years left on his current deal – always wanted to move to a Premier League club this season having spent last term with Serie A side Torino.

The 30-year-old has his eyes firmly on next summer’s World Cup finals with England, as he hopes to retain his place as number one under Gareth Southgate.

Slaven Bilic has given the green-light to bring in Hart, as he feels he is an upgrade on both his current keepers – Darren Randolph and Adrian.

West Ham have agreed a year-long loan for Hart, with a view to making the deal permanent next summer.
