Birmingham keeper Joe Hart says he is loving life at St Andrews, but refuses to be drawn on where his future lies.

Birmingham keeper Joe Hart says he is loving life at St Andrews, but refuses to be drawn on where his future lies.

The 22-year-old is proving an outstanding success during his season-long loan from Manchester City, leading to speculation he may stay on with the Blues after the summer.

Hart told the Sunday Mercury: "I'm really enjoying it at Birmingham. They are great people, a good club and great fans.

"You can't go on a run like we've done with a bad egg in the team, we've got all good, solid lads.

"Regarding my future, there is nothing I'd rule in or rule out. It's not anything I'm considering right now simply because I'm just enjoying what I'm doing.

"There's no hassle. There's no pressure and I'm on loan until the end of the season. That will never change, regardless of what anyone says.

"So I'm going to be here until the end of the season and I'm really enjoying the prospect of turning out and hopefully getting more performances in like we did at Stoke."

City have new boss Roberto Mancini at the helm but Hart does not think the Italian will be bringing his own man into the No.1 spot at Eastlands to replace Shay Given.

He added: "Mancini's got the money but he's also got Shay Given. I don't know how much money would replace him.

"I speak to Shay regularly. He's a great guy and a great goalkeeper."
