196 cm





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.

The England international 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 two League Cup winners' medals.

A Champions League semi-finalist with City in 2016, Hart has been capped 75 times by England since making his debut in 2008 and was part of the country's World Cup Finals squad in 2010 and 2014.

After spending season-long loans at Torino and West Ham to keep playing first-team football, Hart made Burnley his third permanent club and started the 2018/19 season as first choice at Turf Moor.

He played the first 19 Premier League games of the season, and featured in goal in Burnley's first home European tie for 51 years, at home to Istanbul Basaksehir, before making way for Tom Heaton.
