Manchester City star, Joe Hart has hinted he is ready to end his career at the Etihad after negotiations over a new 5-year-deal are all but completed, according to BBC Sport.
The 27-year-old, England stopper said, “As far as I am aware it is pretty much sorted,” the England keeper said. “I want to be here as long as I can.”
Hart joined City from Shrewsbury for £600,000 in 2006 and has won two Premier League titles with the club. “I love this place and I love everything about Manchester City,” he said. “I have been here for a long time. I feel like it is my club now.”I am very happy at this club and hopefully in the near future I will be signing that contract.”
The new deal is set to be around £120k a week, which would denote his importance to City and underline his role as the first choice keeper in the eyes of Manuel Pelligrini despite the signing of Willy Caballero, from Malaga in the Summer.
Hart says he feels in tip top form and is ready to help the Citizens progress this season; “I feel good at the moment and the team is working well. I feel like I am doing my bit and the boys are doing it at the other end.”
