Burnley keeper Joe Hart has revealed that he is looking for a new club ahead of his contract coming to an end with the Premier League club.
The former England international has experienced quite a significant change in his career having been his country’s number one and Manchester City’s number one at the same time between the years of 2007 and 2016.
Now struggling to gain minutes for Burnley, Hart has failed to appear in the Premier League this term for Sean Dyche’s side.
Looking to move elsewhere this summer and available on a free transfer, Football Insider revealed that the Shrewsbury born keeper would be pleased to hold talks with Leeds if that opportunity presented itself.
A potential move for Hart, who reportedly earns £70k-per-week at the Clarets, by Leeds could appease what looks increasingly likely to be a summer exit for controversial Spanish stopper Kiko Casilla.
Casilla, who has kept 15 clean sheets for The Whites this term, could be set for an exit with Noel Whelan discussing his future in a recent interview.
Hart could certainly prove to be a good replacement for Casilla, but the Englishman’s lack of football over the last few seasons and his rejection by both Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) and Dyche (Burnley) could certainly be a deal breaker.
Guardiola and Bielsa are known to be close friends after the former has been largely vocal with praise for the Argentine coach.
Hart may well have lots of offers this summer, but becoming a regular in the Premier League once again, may be too far a step.
