Torino loanee Joe Hart grateful to Man City - 'Thanks for the memories'

Joe Hart has posted a message on Facebook following his loan move to Torino.

The England goalkeeper has joined the Italian club on a season-long loan from Manchester City and upon doing so, has expressed his gratitude to the Etihad Stadium club.

Reading between the lines, it appears as though Hart may have played his final game for City, but as we know things can change over the course of a season.

Hart wrote: "I just wanted to take this opportunity to address all the amazing Manchester City fans who have been so good to me.

"It's been a difficult few weeks but that will never cloud the amazing journey and experience your great club has given to me. From the moment I signed in 2006, the club and its fans have given me football and life experiences I could never have imagined and I am so thankful for that.

"Football is a crazy game and, due to circumstances, I am now moving on to another chapter of my career and I am very grateful that Torino has given me this opportunity to play for their great club.

"But the feelings I felt during the recent Steaua Bucharest game will live with me forever. You can't buy that and I will struggle to replicate them. So thank you for that and all the amazing memories.

"There are many great people at the club behind the scenes and the club is moving in the right direction, so I would like to wish Manchester City football club,all its staff and players and of course the fans, all the best for the coming season and beyond."
