West Ham United are set to offer Manchester City outcast Joe Hart a Premier League life-line.
The Sun are reporting that the Hammers are interested in signing Hart, despite his shaky form: he was arguably at fault for both free-kicks as England drew to Scotland, and has made a string of errors whilst on loan to Torino.
The Hammers face difficulty in stumping up the £18 million valuation that City have placed on the Englishman and are, instead, set to offer a loan-deal with a permanent transfer upon completion of a season.
They hope that this will be enough to convince City of their intent to actually buy England’s number one.
If Hart is to leave City for a Premier League side, this is the type of team that City would allow him to join: the Hammers are clearly not a title rival.
Besides, it remains unlikely that any of the top teams would consider Hart.
Slaven Bilic has tied Adrian, their current keeper, down to a new deal but there still linger doubts over his quality, whilst Darren Randolph was dropped following a string of weak performances.
Hart to West Ham makes a great deal of sense and would represent good business from both clubs if a deal was agreed.
