Joe Hart excited by West Ham challenge

Goalkeeper Joe Hart makes a save during the England training session at the Chemin De Ronde Stadium

After signing for West Ham on a season-long loan, Joe Hart has spoken about his excitement of the new challenge, saying he is pleased to be playing regularly in the Premier League once again.


When Pep Guardiola made it clear that Hart wasn't required at Man City last summer, the England keeper spent the 2016-2017 campaign at Italian side Torino. He's back in England now though and will spend this season at the London Stadium.

City are likely to pay some of the wages for the 30-year-old, with his contract not due to expire until 2019. Hart is simply taking things season by season at the moment though and is clearly happy to be at West Ham United.

Speaking after his move was confirmed, he told the club's official website: "It's important for me to play football, and to get the opportunity to come here and play is absolutely awesome.

"To be playing in the Premier League for a big club like West Ham, I'm really looking forward to the season.

"I've always loved the Club. I think you'll struggle to find anyone, apart from the direct opposing fans around London, who doesn't love the Club. It's got something about it, it's got a lot history and I've always loved playing against West Ham.

"We've moved into London Stadium and we've got Slaven in charge who I've spoken to and I've always enjoyed as a manager. He obviously did a good job with Croatia and he's doing a good job here, so to get the opportunity to come here, it wasn't really a hard decision."

One man who isn't happy though is fellow Hammers keeper Adrian. After the club posted an interview where owner David Sullivan said Hart was the 'best keeper' he had worked with, Adrian responded on Twitter.



Surely Hart starts as No.1, but if he suffers a dip in form - Adrian is waiting to go!
