Burnley

Hart wanted by French giants

9th April 2019, 19:00 by Tom Hill

Joe Hart could be leaving Burnley to join Ligue 1 side Lille in the summer, according to reports in the English media.

The Burnley goalkeeper is out of favour at Turf Moor and struggling for first-team football, with Tom Heaton now back as the regular number one.

Hart started the campaign, with Heaton and Nick Pope out injured, but he now finds himself at a crossroads for the third time in his career.

The England international previously enjoyed a 12-month spell with Torino in Serie A and now appears to be on his way to France.

Marseille, St Etienne, Guingamp and Lyon have also shown an interest but it is Lille who are winning the race.

They are currently flying high in the league and are destined to qualify for the Champions League next season.
