Hart so grateful to West Ham boss Bilic and the two Davids

Joe Hart is desperate to repay the faith shown in him by West Ham.

The on-loan Manchester City goalkeeper makes his debut today at Manchester United.

He told the Daily Mail: "I'm trying to make a point to Slaven (Bilic).

"He's my coach. I'm trying to make my point to Gareth Southgate. They're my coaches. They're the people whose opinions I care about.

"Ideally I wanted to be signing a permanent deal somewhere so I could set my life up and have a direction. But that wasn't meant to be and West Ham have been absolutely fantastic towards me.

"I cannot be any more grateful for the opportunity they have given me. Slaven has come and Mr (David) Gold and Mr (David) Sullivan have come in and made their intentions clear that they want me to be here. There wasn't an awful lot of movement goalkeeper-wise this summer so I'm very grateful to get this opportunity."
