Hart insists no tension amongst Burnley's England keepers

Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart insists the club's three senior keepers are supportive of eachother.

Fellow England internationals Tom Heaton and Nick Pope will be competing with Hart for a place.

"The club sold itself really, given the atmosphere and how they go about things," Hart told the Daily Mail. "It's me down to a tee.

"It's the first club I've been at since Shrewsbury where the majority (of players) are English. It's a very British team. Even the foreign lads are British-foreign.

"Regardless of nationality, everyone is on the same page here. Everyone is pulling in the same direction. It sounds like an easy thing to have but it's not.

"I spoke to the other two goalkeepers. Whoever plays, we're going to support each other like we have done when we've been together in the national team."
