Celtic have started talks with Joe Hart after 37-year-old Craig Gordon confirmed he would be leaving the club with his contract now expired, according to Daily Record.
Hart has been trying to find his feet ever since Pep Guardiola took over at Manchester City in 2016. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss replaced him immediately with Claudio Bravo, and later added Ederson Moraes to his ranks and made the Brazilian his undisputed number one choice between the posts.
Since then, Hart had loan spells with Torino and West Ham, and moved to Burnley on a permanent basis two years ago. His contract with the Clarets expires at the end of the month, and they’ve decided not to offer him a new one with Nick Pope back on duty after a lengthy injury lay-off.
Hart’s move to Celtic will now depend firstly on what happens with Fraser Forster, whose loan from Southampton also expires this month. The Scottish champions would like to keep the services of the 32-year-old, but thrashing out a deal with the Saints is expected to be difficult.
