Report: Norwich City want to sign £4m Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart

Daniel Farke, Manager of Norwich City reacts during the Carabao Cup Fourth Round match between Arsenal and Norwich City at Emirates Stadium on October 24, 2017 in London, England.

Joe Hart reportedly wants to leave Burnley and could join Daniel Farke's Premier League newcomers Norwich City.

Norwich City are interested in offering out-of-favour Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart a fresh start this summer, according to the Sun (9 May, page 53).

The 75-time England international only moved to Turf Moor last summer for £4 million but he has once again found himself warming the bench.

Hart has not made a Premier League appearance since December with Tom Heaton establishing himself as Burnley’s number one since his return from a long-term shoulder issue.


The Sun reports that Sean Dyche’s side could be willing to let the 32-year-old leave for free this summer, despite the fact that he has one more year left on his contract.

And Norwich, who were crowned Championship winners on Sunday, are apparently interested in offering the former Manchester City talisman a lifeline, although Hart also has offers on the table from clubs in France and Italy.

It remains to be seen whether the Canaries can lure Hart to Carrow Road with the veteran shot-stopper allegedly unwilling to take a drop in wages.

Norwich already have an experienced goalkeeper in Tim Krul but the Dutchman was often the target for critics despite Daniel Farke’s side cruising to promotion.
