Joe Hart's Admission About Deadline Day Is Pretty Sad

Despite being England's number one and a two time Premier League winning goalkeeper, Joe Hart has admitted that he was low on options for new clubs on transfer deadline day.

Hart, who eventually made a season long loan switch to Torino, almost immediately fell out of favour with Pep Guardiola, who preferred to bring in Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo to be his first choice 'keeper, instead.

And, with time running out, Hart jumped at the chance to play in Turin instead of going four months without first team football until the January transfer window.

"I'm not going to lie, I wasn't sat there with 25 options. Torino was a really good option for me and it definitely excited me to go to play in Serie A and to play for Torino. That fit, in the situation I was in, was a good decision."

"It's not about making brave decisions, it was a decision I had to make and was comfortable with. I felt I was capable of doing it and, where my options were, it was the best one for me in my opinion."

Although Hart was at fault for Atalanta's equaliser during his debut for the 'Granata', the former City number one has become a fan favourite in Northern Italy and is unlikely to return to Eastlands when his deal with the Serie A outfit expires at the end of the season.
