Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart won't rule out signing permanently with Birmingham City.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I've been on loan before, but this is different. I went to both Tranmere and Blackpool at different times, but those were short things where you just rushed in, turned up on the day and played.

"This is more long-term and serious. I want to get settled and feel part of the club. Beyond that you can't put a long-term aim on anything in football."
