Shocked not shocked really. Joe Hart no longer has a club to play for after his Burnley deal was not renewed.
You have to rethink your life and career choice if a mid-table team who were fighting relegation last season doesn’t want to renew your contract, despite the financial restraints on all clubs due to COVID-19.
It is a sad affair, especially when you reflect on the problems the player has been having regarding mental health issues. From being the Premier League-winning hero at the Etihad for Man City to being part of the reason his team almost got relegated takes a lot of getting over.
“I don’t have a football club but I’ve definitely got a plan.”
Joe Hart has spoken on his future…

This season was poor on its own
The ex-England international made a measly three appearances this season. Making the stat even more worrying for somebody looking at Hart as a stopper is he has conceded seven goals in those three games.
There’s no denying last season broke the goalkeeper. He had his worst campaign between the sticks, conceding 42 goals in only 19 appearances. Burnley and Sean Dyche must have been praying for the return of Pope after witnessing these numbers.
Not all is bad for Joe
Joe Hart is a two-time Premier League winner thanks to his Man City days. Sadly, he can blame Pep Guardiola for losing his spot and his life going on a downward spiral ever since. He feels he can still do the job and improve from last season’s poor stats.
Rumoured to be in for him are Scottish side Celtic and English side, West Brom. He will opt for any move that would keep him in England. Good luck Joe and hope to soon hear an EPL club announce they’ve signed him.
