JOE HART HAS joined Burnley on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old signs for the Clarets for an undisclosed fee and it brings to an end his 12-year stay at Manchester City, where he won two titles, the FA Cup and two League Cups.

Since the arrival of current manager Pep Guardiola, however, he has found himself out of favour at the club — spending the last two seasons on loan at Torino and West Ham.

Capped 75 times for England, Hart missed out on a place in their World Cup squad as Gareth Southgate’s side went on to finish fourth in Russia.

With goalkeepers Nick Pope and Tom Heaton both injured, Burnley were badly in need of an experienced stopper ahead of their league opener against Southampton this Sunday.

He is Sean Dyche’s second summer signing after Ben Gibson arrived from Middlesbrough for £15 million.
