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.

In the second half at the Etihad, Joe Hart had to scramble to clear a poor back pass and injured his calf in the process.

The extent of the injury isn't yet clear but Joe Hart was stretchered off during City's 1-0 loss to rivals Manchester United. With an international break coming up the England number one will have a little extra time to recover before City continue their Champions League campaign and their quest to remain in the top four and qualify for next season's Champions League.

Joe Hart took part in a full Manchester City training session on Thursday and is set to reclaim his starting spot if his hamstring doesn't have any adverse reactions.

Manuel Pellegrini will address the media with a full update later today, but Hart is expected to return after missing just one Premier League game and the League Cup earlier this week. Willy Caballero filled in as the starter after Hart injured his hamstring and back in the club's 1-0 Champions League loss to Juventus. But with Hart set to return, expect Caballero to head back to the bench while Richard Wright drops out of the squad.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said he was hopeful that Saturday will see the return of Joe Hart and Sergio Aguero after the duo missed the League Cup win against Hull on Tuesday.

Hart missed Week 14 and the League Cup due to a hamstring injury, but Pellegrini said he will be back by next week's Champions League fixture, at the latest. Willy Caballero has filled in over the past two games and will continue to do so if Hart can't go. Meanwhile, Pellegrini confirmed that defender Vincent Kompany will not be available for the next week of games and would not be fit before the club's Week 16 match against Swansea on December 12 as he recovers from a calf injury. Eliaquim Mangala returned to fill in for him in the League Cup alongside Nicolas Otamendi.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed the news that goalkeeper Joe Hart will miss the weekend and likely Week 15 as well with a hamstring injury.

Said Pellegrini on Friday: "Joe Hart has a muscle injury - you never know as it depends how he improves but I think he will be out for ten days." Hart injured the hamstring late in Wednesday's 1-0 Champions loss to Juventus in Turin. Pellegrini confirmed Willy Caballero will receive his second Premier League start of the season while Richard Wright will be the backup keeper for the match against Southampton.

Manchester City could be without goalkeeper Joe Hart after the England starter left the club's 1-0 Champions League loss to Juventus with a hamstring injury.

The goalkeeper was subbed off in the 80th minute after signaling to the bench just after making a spectacular save on an Alvaro Morata chance to keep the one-goal deficit. Manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed that Willy Caballero, who replaced Hart on Wednesday, will be ready to face Southampton is Hart can't go: "He has a problem with his hamstring and has had a problem in his back for the past week. We hope we don’t lose him, but for if for some reason he cannot play I have trust in Willy Caballero."
