Bookmakers predict a transfer to France for Joe Hart this summer

Joe hart

Could Joe Hart be set for transfer to Ligue 1?

Joe Hart looks set to be available for transfer once again this summer, having lost his place in the Burnley starting 11. The former England number one is now behind Tom Heaton in the pecking order at Turf Moor and with Nick Pope also at the club, it is thought that one of the trio will be moved on this summer.

And with Hart being the highest earner at the club, it is believed that he is the one they are most likely to try and offload.

He only signed for Burnley last summer, arriving for £3.5 million from Manchester City where he had been on the books for 12 years. Having had a successful tenure between the sticks at the Etihad and helping City to two Premier League titles, he was dropped when Pep Guardiola took over in 2016.

Loan moves to Torino in Serie A and West Ham United followed before he ultimately left permanently to join the Clarets. He began the season in Sean Dyche's starting line-up whilst both Heaton and Pope struggled with injuries, but Burnley struggled for results in that time.

Heaton replaced Hart upon his return to fitness and they started to pick up better results, going eight matches unbeaten in the Premier League and winning five of those.

It leaves Hart probably looking for his next career move in the summer, but where will he go? He is 10/11 to leave Burnley this summer, and we have taken a look at the bookmakers odds to see which clubs could potentially sign the former England man.

Lille favourites to secure Joe Hart transfer

The favourites with bookmaker Sky Bet to sign Hart this summer are Ligue 1 outfit Lille. Les Dogues are currently enjoying an excellent season in the French top flight, sitting in second place behind runaway leaders PSG, but ahead of the likes of Marseille and Lyon.

With five points currently separating themselves and Lyon in third, they are in pole position to qualify automatically for next seasons Champions League group stage.

Mike Maignan is the man who has been Lille's regular goalkeeper this season with Adam Jakubech their back-up option. However, should they secure a place in the Champions League they may look to get an experienced goalkeeper in to strengthen their squad, with their two current stoppers aged 23 and 22 respectively.

Hart could be that man according to bookmakers, having played in Europe for several years whilst at Manchester City. Indeed he is currently priced at 3/1 to join Lille in the next transfer window.

Other Ligue 1 clubs odds to sign Joe Hart available

Lille are not the only French club to be available on the Joe Hart's next club market. The second favourites to sign the 31-year-old are Marseille, who are sat fifth in Ligue 1 at the moment.

Club legend Steve Mandanda is currently the man between the sticks for last years Europe League finalists, but at 34-years-old his best years are now behind him and they could well look for a replacement. Their odds are 8/1 to secure the services of the two-time Premier League winner.

Lyon are also on the list at 14/1, as are St Etienne (16/1), Guingamp who could well be relegated to Ligue 2 (18/1) and Rennes (20/1).

In terms of other options, a transfer to Championship side Middlesbrough may be a possibility with odds of 9/1, whilst Norwich City who look set to be promoted to the Premier League are 14/1 to sign Hart.
