The former England number one has seen his career go from the very top of football to the substitutes’ bench, having had a successful period for both his country and Manchester City between the years of 2007 and 2016.
Struggling this term to gain minutes for Burnley, Hart has failed to make a single Premier League appearance for Sean Dyche’s side and his future is now being discussed with the shot stopper set to be available on a free transfer this summer.
Football Insider revealed that the Shrewsbury-born keeper would be pleased to hold talks with Leeds if that opportunity presented itself, and that has opened up a potential replacement for controversial Spanish stopper Kiko Casilla, who has been linked with an exit.

Hart certainly seems a good option for Leeds, although the Englishman’s lack of first team football over the last few months could be a problem and some fans of the Whites have reacted negatively to such reports.
Rather go with our young lad thanks !

Pep got rid because he was not good with passing out from the back,Pep is a pupil of bielsas philosophy so no chance this will happen

Deemed surplus to requirements by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Burnley counterpart Dyche, Hart’s future in the Premier League looks uncertain and these fans further reacted to what they believed to be a ‘wind up’.
This is a wind up, right? He’s been finished ever since Pep binned him off…
