Hart joined the Clarets for an undisclosed fee on an initial two-year contract in July 2018, after ending a trophy-laden 12-year stay at Premier League champions Manchester City.

Hart spent more than a decade at City, playing 348 times for the club, after signing from Shrewsbury Town in 2006.

And during his time at the Etihad Stadium the keeper won a catalogue of honours at the highest level.

After initially gaining further senior experience out on loan at Birmingham City, Blackpool and Tranmere Rovers, Hart was an ever-present in 2011/12 as City won the Premier League title for the first time and ended a 44-year wait to become champions of England.

He was then the regular number-one in helping City win the title again in 2014 and also won an FA Cup winners’ medal from a final win over Stoke City in 2010/11 and helped the club to two successes in the League Cup.

Hart – capped 75 times by England after making his debut in 2008 and a Champions League semi-finalist in 2016 – has spent the last two seasons out on loan at Torino and West Ham to keep playing first-team football.
