Joe Hart has recovered from illness and will be available for Thursday's match against Manchester United.
Hart is back in contention and will resume his competitions with Adrian for the starting goalkeeper spot. "Joe Hart is over his illness," Moyes told a press conference. "I spoke with Joe a few weeks ago, at different times, and explained to him what I was feeling. Adrian was part of a clean-sheet on Saturday." Hart could return in between the sticks against Manchester United, although Adrian is well placed after keeping a clean sheet at Leicester City. On the injury front, January signing Jordan Hugill could get a place in the team with Javier Hernandez a doubt due to a knee injury. "I would like to get him [Hugill] an opportunity in the team, somewhere to show or give him an opportunity," Moyes said. May 9 - 6:42 PM

Adrian will be recalled this weekend with Joe Hart ineligible to play against his parent club Manchester City.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, manager David Moyes revealed Adrian will be called on with on-loan Hart unable to play due the to stipulations of the loan agreement. Hart has been preferred between the sticks in recent weeks, but having conceded six goals in the last three matches, the number one role up is again up for grabs. While Moyes hinted he could stick with Adrian if the Spaniard impresses against the Premier League Champions, he took a neutral stance when asked about the option of signing Hart on a permanent deal. Said Moyes: "There are certainly no talks about whether it's Adrian or Joe Hart or anybody because until we are in a position of safety, we won't me making any decisions like that where we are going to be. So no, we've not discussed them."

Joe Hart has stated he is determined to repay manager Gareth Southgate's loyalty after being selected in England's 27-man squad for friendly matches against the Netherlands and Italy.

Hart has 75 caps under his belt and has started 12 of Southgate’s 14 matches in charge of the Three Lions. However, the 30-year-old's lack of first-team football in 2017-18 has put his position as England's No1 in jeopardy, with Everton’s Jordan Pickford, Stoke City’s Jack Butland and Burnley’s Nick Pope included in Southgate's squad for the first two of four pre-FIFA World Cup finals friendlies. Hart, who made his first Premier League start in over three months in West Ham's most recent match against Burnley, said: "Hopefully I’ve got my place back now [at West Ham] and we’ll see where we go with that. For now, I’m just focused on this camp and being a part of a squad that I’ve been a big part of for a long time now. I am not here to answer critics. I am here to play football, enjoy what I do and try and help my team the best way I can."

David Moyes' side are in a bad way these days, getting crushed for a third straight match, this time at the hands of Burnley in a 0-3 loss.

Having given up eight goals in their previous two league outings, Moyes looked to shake things up by calling upon Joe Hart in place of Adrian between the sticks, but the results were abysmal. To their credit, the Hammers were the stronger side in the first half, but chances from Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini went by the wayside and it was goalless at halftime. Burnley had a weapon ready on their bench and they ran over the Hammers when he was brought on as Chris Wood played a part in three goals over a 21 minute span. The final goal was Hart's fault. as he spilled a deep shot that he should have collected and he paid the price. West Ham are heading the wrong way at the wrong time of the season, getting dangerously close to the relegation zone.

West Ham manager David Moyes has revealed that Joe Hart will start in goal for Tuesday's Carabao Cup quarter-final against Arsenal.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Moyes confirmed that Hart "will definitely start" when the Hammers travel to the Emirates tomorrow night. The start will be the first for the England international since the 4-0 defeat at Everton, though it’s unlikely one outing will be enough to displace the in-form Adrian. The Spaniard impressed against Manchester City with Hart ineligible due to his loan agreement and has retained his place since, keeping three successive clean sheets after impressing at the Etihad. Moyes told the club's website: "I’ve said all along that we have two really good goalkeepers and the two of them have been excellent. Joe been very good around the place and he’s ready to play." Meanwhile, Winston Reid is available after a one-match ban and Andy Carroll (back) could be fit after missing the trip to Stoke City at the weekend.

Adrian will be handed his first Premier League start of the season with Joe Hart unavailable to play against parent club Manchester City on Sunday.

The England international has struggled this season conceding a league high 30 goals in 13 appearances. With Hart under even more fire following his display in the 4-0 defeat at Everton in midweek and ineligible following his loan move from City in the summer, Adrian will be aiming to turn heads against the potent Manchester City attack. Yet to start in the Premier League this season, Adrian kept six clean sheets in 16 appearances for the Hammers in 2016/17.

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.
