Several Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to make it clear that they do not want the club to sign Joe Hart this month.
Hart has been linked with a move to Villa Park following Tom Heaton’s long-term injury, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Burnley shot-stopper is just one goalkeeper Dean Smith is currently considering.
Would Joe Hart be a good stop-gap?
He has not played a Premier League game this season, firmly behind Nick Pope in the pecking order at Turf Moor, but would still bring plenty of experience to Smith’s side.
The 32-year-old has made 340 appearances in the Premier League, a whopping 338 more than Villa’s current deputy, Orjan Nyland, winning two titles in the process. In that time, he also managed to win four Golden Gloves.
However, having suffered quite the fall from grace, going from Manchester City’s starting XI to Burnley’s bench, some Villa fans are not convinced.
Take a look at what they have had to say below…

Seen Butland and now Hart mentioned. Don’t think either would be an upgrade on Nyland. Butland at his best, yes but the way he’s performed for Stoke this year, no.
