Revealed: Slim majority of West Ham fans would back Hart loan deal

Although he remains on the books at Manchester City, Joe Hart is very much a man without a club.

There’s been hardly any talk of him signing for Torino permanently after spending last season there on loan, but his career with the Citizens appears to be dead in the water as well.

A readily available 71-cap England international would usually set pulses racing but Hart’s increasing tally of costly goalkeeping errors appears to have swayed a significant chunk of public opinion against him.

Earlier this week, the Hammers were linked with a loan swoop for the 30-year-old, so we asked Irons supporters whether they’d back such a deal – something that seemed more than likely following underwhelming form from Adrian and Darren Randolph.

And although the majority of West Ham fans would be in favour of a loan swoop, it’s perhaps more significant that 41% voted against it, showing how the 6 foot 5 shot-stopper would actually be quite a controversial signing in east London.
