Lille eyeing Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart

Lille are eyeing Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The Daily Mail says Hart is on the shortlist at French Champions League club Lille should they sell current No 1 Mike Maignan.

Hart, 32, has been told by Burnley he can leave on a free in order to reduce the wage bill at Turf Moor with Nick Pope and Tom Heaton both fit for next season.

The former England goalkeeper, who has also been linked with Stoke, would be open to a move abroad to revive a career that has stalled in recent times.

Pep Guardiola ditched him at Manchester City soon after his arrival in 2016 and after a season-long loan with Torino, moves to West Ham and Burnley haven't worked out.
