West Ham's rough start to the season continued on Saturday with a 3-0 defeat at Newcastle United.
Joselu, Ciaran Clark and Aleksandar Mitrovic scored for the Magpies as the Hammers suffered their third defeat of the season. Slaven Bilic's side struggled to put the hosts under real pressure despite controlling 63% of possession. The closest they came to scoring was a first-half volley by Aaron Cresswell and a second half chance by Javier Hernandez, but the striker was denied by Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot. While Joe Hart did make a few nice saves to keep the scoreline from being even more lopsided, the Hammers have now conceded a league worst 10 goals through the first three matches of the season.

After a one-year absence, Joe Hart will make his Premier League return this season with West Ham.

The Manchester City goalkeeper joins the Hammers on a season-long loan with an option to make the move permanent. Hart spent last season on loan at Torino but now becomes the clear No. 1 option over Darren Randolph and despite the club re-signing Adrian to a new contract earlier in the summer. But for the 30-year-old Hart, the chance to be back in the Premier League is a massive move heading into a World Cup year still as England's No. 1, but facing heavy competition "To be playing in the Premier League for a big club like West Ham, I'm really looking forward to the season. I've always loved the Club. I think you'll struggle to find anyone, apart from the direct opposing fans around London, who doesn't love the Club. It's got something about it, it's got a lot history and I've always loved playing against West Ham.

England international Joe Hart has passed his medical ahead of his loan move from Manchester City to West Ham.

Hart is set to join the Hammers on season-long loan deal that includes the option for the move to be made permanent next summer. The 30-year-old spent last season on loan with Serie A outfit Toronio after being deemed surplus at the Eithad following the arrival of manager Pep Guardiola, while the summer addition of Brazilian Ederson signaled the end to his time as a Citizen. Hart's move to East London presents him with an opportunity to cement an England place with the World Cup in just 11 months time, and boss Slaven Bilic with an upgraded option between the sticks. With 119 clean sheets and an average of 2.68 saves per match over the course of 302 career Premier League appearances, Hart will likely take over the role first-choice role from current West Ham stopper Adrian.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has not received any contract offers this summer as he looks to leave the club.

The England No. 1 returned from his loan at Torino to see Manchester City sign another goalkeeper in Benfica's Ederson, seemingly ending his career at the club. But his current wage package creates problems for other clubs who want a permanent transfer, meaning West Ham could swoop in for a loan. Said Hart: "I would love to give you a poker-straight answer, but I've got nothing at the moment because I think people are focused on international duty...I need an offer first and then I need to work out my options if I have choices. I want to be playing at the highest possible level, pushing myself. It's a short career. I want to push everything out of me. Physically I feel in great condition and I want to go again."

The future of Joe Hart remains uncertain after the England international confirmed he would not be returning to Torino following his season-long loan.

There had been a suggestion in the British press that Pep Guardiola was ready to hand the 30-year-old a lifeline after Claudio Bravo failed to convince anyone of his goalkeeping credentials and Willy Caballero was released. However, it now looks like those reports were a little wide of the mark. The Citizens have been heavily linked with a £35m move for Brazilian Ederson who admitted on Sunday that he had "probably" played his last game for Benfica. There are several potential Premier League suitors, his preferred destination, with manager less Crystal Palace reportedly leading the way for Hart's signature. City rivals United have also been linked, but it would only be on the premise that Jose Mourinho had sanctioned David De Gea's departure, something which he vehemently denied earlier this month.

Joe Hart has officially been sent by Manchester City to Serie A side Torino on a season-long loan spell.

The imminent move is now complete as Hart becomes the first England keeper to play in the Italian league. The writing was on the wall for a move away when Pep Guardiola preferred Willy Caballero to the England international when the season began and, with the arrival of Claudio Bravo, Hart now has a chance to be a starter elsewhere. Caballero will quickly revert to being the backup choice as Bravo is certain to take the #1 shirt and Bravo needs to be owned in all fantasy draft leagues. Managers should be putting in a waiver claim or bidding FAAB budget to land Bravo, who should help a Citizens defense that has failed to record a clean sheet in their first three league games.

The agent of Manchester City's Joe Hart has reportedly confirmed to Italian media that the goalkeeper is set for a medical at Torino.

Said agent Jonathan Barnett: "Yes, Joe Hart will play with Torino. It's done. The player said yes to the club and also Manchester City have given the green light. It is all true. Tomorrow [Tuesday] Hart will have a medical in Turin." The 29-year-old keeper quickly fell out of favor under Pep Guardiola in the final weeks of the preseason and now looks to be the No. 3 keeper after the arrival of Claudio Bravo from Barcelona. Hart has reportedly received permission to leave England camp today to complete the season-long loan to the Serie A side, who finished 12th in the league last season.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made it clear that he will not let the benching of goalkeeper Joe Hart become a distraction at the club.

Said the former Bayern Munich and Barcelona manager: "I don't want players to stay if they don't want," Guardiola said. "If they want to stay, stay and we will fight together..."Maybe Joe will stay here and be a player who will fight with the other goalkeepers to convince me to play him. That is the way it is - nothing has changed." The England No. 1 looks set for a loan move away from the club before the end of the month with Everton in the mix, especially after Barcelona confirmed the clubs have reached an agreement over the transfer of Barca keeper Claudio Bravo this weekend.

The future of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart looks to be away from the Etihad after being benched for the club's opener.

Hart is the club's longest-serving player after 10 years with the Sky Blues and is the England No. 1, but that didn't stop new manager Pep Guardiola from making a statement by benching him for the club's 2-1 win against Sunderland in favor of backup Willy Caballero. Guardiola openly admitted that he wasn't satisfied with Hart's footwork as he prefers a sweeper keeper-type at the back. With this is mind, Manchester City is rumored to be pursuing either Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen or Claudio Bravo along with Sporting Lisbon keeper Rui Patricio with reports suggesting City is open to any offers around £20 million for Hart.

England endured a scoreless draw with Slovakia on Monday in the final game of Group B, where the country finished second.

England could do nothing to secure a first-place finish as the Three Lions watched rival Wales surpass them on the final matchday of the group with a 3-0 win against Russia. England made six changes to the starting lineup, resting the likes of Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane, by adding Jack Wilshere, Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Rose, Jamie Vardy, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson to the mix in a lackadaisical effort to secure only a point when one goal would have won the group. Joe Hart and the back-line held strong, but Roy Hodgson's men couldn't manage a goal despite 29 shots.

The rumor mill has turned out a doozy today with the news that Joe Hart could be headed to Everton to fill the Tim Howard-sized hole in net at Goodison Park.

The build-up to this conclusion has elements that make at least some sense. Pep Guardiola has been rumored to want to bring in former Barcelona pupil Marc-Andre ter Stegen as he ascends to the top job at the Etihad. At Everton, Tim Howard has departed leaving only an adequate reserve in Joel Robles for the spot. The Goodison Park outfit also have a new owner with lots of money which will always lead to crazy transfer rumors. Perhaps the stumbling block here will be City's need to keep their English players to make up the home grown numbers required by UEFA and the FA. Seems hard to believe that this one would happen but at least it's something to break up the monotony of Zlatan-to-United rumors.

On Monday, England national team manager Roy Hodgson released the 27-man provisional squad for the European championships this summer following the conclusion of the Premier League season.

Hodgson named three Manchester City players in his plans for the team's upcoming friendlies as goalkeeper Joe Hart and midfielders Fabian Delph and Raheem Sterling will feature in the squad. However, Hodgson and his staff will have to cut four players to get down to the requisite 23-man team for the summer's tournament. Delph is one of the favorites to be cut, but will have two friendlies to prove his worth. Raheem Sterling will be fighting for a starting spot while Joe Hart is practically guaranteed the spot in goal in the starting XI with Jack Butland out injured.

Manchester City has received a major boost on the injury front after Joe Hart was passed fit to return from a calf injury.

The goalkeeper is expected to start against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal at the Parc des Princes. The club was holding out until the last moment to see if Hart could overcome a calf injury that has required him to be taken off on a stretcher against Manchester United at the end of March. The injury ruled him out for two weeks, which included the international break, but the club's medical staff has cleared him for an immediate return, meaning backup Willy Caballero is set to return to his role on the bench.

Manchester City is holding out hope for Joe Hart to be available to face Paris Saint-Germain in Wednesday's Champions League showdown.

Willy Caballero, who has filled in for Hart over the past two weeks, said he has not been told whether he will start this week as the club is holding out until the last minute to see if Hart can overcome a calf injury suffered during a 1-0 loss to Manchester United prior to the international break. The goalkeeper has been rated as 50-50 entering the week as the club initially targeted this week for his return. The Sky Blues are also awaiting the status of Yaya Toure, who reportedly has less of a chance of being available. The midfielder missed the weekend, in hopes of being available to face the Ligue 1 giants, due to a heel injury that has plagued him for the last month and will be assessed in training today.

The latest reports suggest that Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart could return sooner than expected following the results of his first scan.

Hart was stretchered off shortly after half-time during Sundays’ Manchester derby with Manuel Pellegrini suggesting the England goalkeeper would miss around a month due to a calf strain. However, further tests have revealed the damage is not as bad as originally feared with the 28-year-old said to be targeting a return against Paris Saint-Germain on 6 April in the Champions League. If true, then Hart will only miss one Premier League game – AFC Bournemouth away – which would see Willy Caballero deputise and veteran Richard Wright on the bench. The ageing goalkeeper last played competitively in the league for Ipswich Town in November 2011.
