BY SAMSON MBII,18TH JULY 2017-West Ham will pay City £4.5m to take Hart to the London Stadium for next season. That sum covers a contribution to the player’s wages and a loan fee.
Hart, who passed his medical on Monday, becomes manager Slaven Bilic’s second signing ahead of the new Premier League season and joins former City team-mate Pablo Zabaleta at the London Stadium.
And the 30-year-old, who will compete with fellow goalkeepers Adrian and Darren Randolph for a starting berth, is looking forward to working with Bilic.
“It’s important for me to play football and to get the opportunity to come here and play is absolutely awesome,” he told West Ham TV. “To be playing in the Premier League for a big club like West Ham, I’m really looking forward to the season.
Hart had been expected to leave City this summer after returning from a season-long loan at Serie A side Torino and admitted in May that he was “more than likely” to move to another Premier League club.
