Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart is considering a move to the United States and Major League Soccer.
The 31-year old moved to Burnley in the summer, and initially had a starting berth at Turf Moor with both Tom Heaton and Nick Pope both injured.
However, with Heaton now back to full fitness, he was recalled to the side in place of Hart, a move which corresponded with an upturn in the club’s fortunes, as they climb steadily away from relegation trouble. Since Heaton has been back in the side, Burnley have won five of the eight league games that they have played, conceding just seven goals in an unbeaten run.
Now come reports that Hart has been offered to clubs in the MLS, with Colombus Crew, who are losing their current keeper Zack Steffen to Manchester City in the summer, said to amongst the clubs interested.
It is the latest slide down the football food chain for Hart, he was Manchester City and England goalkeeper when Pep Guardiola took over at Manchester City, but was then dropped and sent on unsuccessful loan spells with Torino and West Ham, before his move to Burnley.
