MANCHESTER CITY ace Joe Hart is on the radar of Southampton and Wolves after West Ham rejected the chance to take him on a permanent deal, according to reports.
The Hammers will end their relationship with Hart after a sub-par season on loan.
Axed England No1 Hart, 31, is unlikely to break back into Pep Guardiola’s plans either, especially with Ederson being handed a new seven-year deal.
But Southampton and newly-promoted Wolves could to hand Hart a lifeline after a nightmare 12 months, according to The Mirror.
Both clubs are in the market for a new No1, with the Man City stopper a proven Premier League commodity.
Southampton have ties with Hart too, with Saints goalkeeping coach Dave Watson working with him at Birmingham earlier in his career.
Meanwhile, Wolves are seemingly willing to splash the cash to ensure they maintain their Premier League status.
The Midlands club have been keeping tabs on Jack Butland, but may be priced out of a deal at £35million.
Hart would prove a cheaper option, as he’s surplus to requirements at the Premier League champions.
The City man played in every World Cup qualifying game en route to Russia – but will not be on the plane to this summer’s tournament.
On the snub, Hart broke his silence, saying: “Not going to lie, I’m gutted. After two years of trying to make the most of a really tough situation, this is hard to take.
“I’m proud to have put in the graft and play every minute to qualify with the team and have a really important input in that outcome.
“I know what I bring to the team, but it is what it is. Good luck to the team out there.
“The players know that even though I won’t be there I will have my England shirt on as a fan this time and supporting all the way.
“No fear, go and smash it. Three Lions and proud.”
