Manchester City and former England keeper Joe Hart has signed for Burnley.

Hart has joined the Clarets for an undisclosed fee on an initial two-year contract after ending a trophy-laden 12-year stay at Premier League champions Manchester City.

The arrival of Hart strengthens the Clarets’ impressive goalkeeping ranks following the injury sustained by Nick Pope at Aberdeen last month.

Pope’s dislocated shoulder is set to keep the 26-year-old – who made his England debut in June ahead of going to the World Cup finals – on the sidelines for a spell.

Hart spent more than a decade at City, playing 348 times for the club, after signing from Shrewsbury Town in 2006.

He was capped 75 times by England after making his debut in 2008 and a Champions League semi-finalist in 2016,has spent the last two seasons out on loan at Torino and West Ham to keep playing first-team football.
