Cape Town - Torino
president Urbano Cairo has revealed that Manchester City goalkeeper Joe
Hart would be happy to stay at the club when his loan deal finishes.
Hart was sent out on loan to Torino in August, after City boss Pep
Guardiola made it clear he did not rate the Englishman, and he has since
helped the Serie A side climb to ninth in the standings.
The Italians seem eager to make Hart's move permanent at the end of
the season, and Cairo believes it depends on what Manchester City want.
"With him there is an excellent relationship," Cairo is quoted as saying.
"He is happy to stay in Turin and we can work on it.
"It depends very much on City but I think Hart would be pleased to
remain at Toro, then we will talk to City about the idea and what they
want to do."
Guardiola meanwhile has ruled out the possibility of the England international rejoining City at the end of the season after stating that he was happy with current shot-stoppers, Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero.
