No Chance Of Blues Signing Hart

No Chance Of Blues Signing Hart

Birmingham City have not been able to acquire the services of on loan goalkeeper Joe Hart on a permanent deal from Manchester City.

City say they have no intention of selling the skillful stopper who has certainly played a major part Birmingham`s current run of excellent form.

Word is that Hart could find himself going to South Africa as part of the England squad and the powers that be at the City of Manchester Stadium don`t want to let such a prize asset go.

Speaking to the Guardian, McLeish said: 'City will take Joe Hart back at the end of the season.

'There is no chance of us signing him in January. We asked the question and they said that won't happen. We never had an option from City to buy him.

'He has the comfort of knowing City really want him and he is part of their future".

merlin we have only sent him out on loan so why does everyone think loan player will sign a proper contract?

If he's not at the World Cup I'll be very surprised and disappointed. As long as Shay Given is at City he'll struggle at Eastlands. You might get another season long loan?

Joe Hart is going to be one of the best keepers in the PL in the very near future, so we'd be very stupid to sell him.

The Babel bid was even more audacious. The signing of Hart would be impressive though.

With the new rules that they are about to introduce, Joe hart would be one of our young players, not only that, his experience gained thanks to birmingham, he will return to City a much better goalkeeper, than he was when he left and he was pretty good then.

No harm in placing another Babel bid now.
