  • Joe Hart signs for Burnley to end 12-year Man City stay

Joe Hart said it was the right time to leave Manchester City after Burnley announced on Tuesday they had signed the former England goalkeeper on a two-year deal.

He admits the move wasn't an option until Pope's injury, but he now swells the goalkeeping ranks under coach Billy Mercer and has been impressed with the atmosphere at the club.

Hart, who has won 75 England caps, made almost 350 appearances for City, winning two Premier League titles and one FA Cup.

The England global completed his £4million move from Manchester City on Tuesday and is impressed with the club he has joined.

The 31-year-old, who cost Burnley a reported £3.5 million ($4.5million), failed to make the England squad for the World Cup despite playing in all but one of the qualifiers.

The 31-year-old becomes the third England worldwide goalkeeper to join Sean Dyche's side, with Nick Pope and Tom Heaton also on the books, but now injured.

Hart joined City in 2006 from his hometown club Shrewsbury Town and was part of their Premier League title wins in 2012 and 2014 but he fell out of favour following the arrival of Pep Guardiola as manager in 2016.

The Boston Globe identified the man who was just inches from the shark's mouth as a MA state biologist named Greg Skomal. A biologist attempting to observe a great white shark ended up getting a little too close for comfort.

Injuries to his two main goalkeepers led to Dyche handing Hart the permanent move away from City he has been looking for after two years of loan spells away, at Italian side Torino and more recently West Ham.

City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: "Joe Hart's contribution to Manchester City can not be overstated".

"His 12 years at the club has seen him produce some remarkable performances and heart-stopping saves that will live in the memory for a long time to come".

"His passion for and commitment to this club, evidenced by a remarkable tally of 348 appearances, means he will rightly be regarded as a City legend in perpetuity".

City captain Vincent Kompany said Hart had played a key part in the transformation of the club.
