Joe Hart won’t be allowed to leave Manchester City


Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has no intention of allowing Joe Hart leave the club on a temporary or permanent basis this summer.

Hart enjoyed an extremely successful campaign on loan with Birmingham City last term but said last week that he would be seeking a move away from Eastlands if he was not Roberto Mancini's first-choice goalkeeper this season.

Sunderland have expressed an interest in the former Shrewsbury Town shot-stopper, only for Mancini to say:"At this moment we have two good goalkeepers and one will play and one will stay on the bench.

"We play many games, a lot of games, in one year – three games every week – so we could play both goalkeepers. I have an idea who will play in goal but I have one week more to decide.

"It is important if there's an injury to a goalkeeper. If we don't have another good one, then that will be a problem."
