It is somewhat inevitable that goalkeeper Joe Hart will depart Turf Moor this summer.
Hart, a former England number 1 and two-time Premier League winner, has not played a top flight match for Burnley since December 2018.
Now the 33-year-old has conceded his future lies away from the Premier League.
Speaking to the Guardian, Hart said:
“I like to think I’m a good catch. I’m on a free contract, I’ve got experience and real hunger. The Premier League has been great for me but I’m more than willing to spread my wings.
“I just want to play at the highest level I can. In England, I don’t feel I am going to be able to do that.”
Although Hart knows his next club is not going to be Real Madrid, he sees his lack of game time as an obstacle.
“It is certainly my lowest point – I’m sad I’m not playing, [but it is] a challenge rather than a dark cloud.”
