Alan Shearer delivers damning verdict on future of West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart

BBC pundit Alan Shearer looks on before the FA Cup Second round match between Hartlepool United and Blyth Spartans at Victoria Park on December 5, 2014 in Hartlepool, England.

Alan Shearer has delivered a damning assessment on West Ham United goalkeeper Joe Hart.

A lot of the talk at West Ham of late has been about Joe Hart.

The Hammers are having a torrid season and sit in the relegation zone past the midway stage.

Slaven Bilic signed Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic in the summer and the East Londoners were widely regarded to have done some good business.

But only Arnautovic has truly impressed and even that took a change of manager to start seeing what the Austrian is capable of.

It has been a different story for Hart under David Moyes, though, with the England number one being dropped in favour of Adrian.

Since losing his place in the Hammers side, Hart has had to watch the Spaniard has impress in most games casting serious doubt over his credentials to keep the England jersey going into a World Cup in the summer with the likes of Jack Butland and Jordan Pickford biting at his heels.

And Premier League and England legend Shearer told Coral the writing is on the wall for Hart.

"I think he's under huge pressure," Shearer told Coral.

"He's not playing in that West Ham team which has to be a major concern for him.

"There are two or three goalkeepers that will put pressure on him obviously Pickford and Butland and their performances have been very good.

"So he's under real pressure and it wouldn't surprise me at all if one of those two were to get the number one spot."
