West Ham keeper Hart relishing Premier League return & Man City clash

Joe Hart cannot wait to be playing in the Premier League again.

The 30-year old completed a loan move to West Ham United from Manchester City on Tuesday.

Hart returns to England's top-flight after spending last season with Serie A club Torino and the Englishman can't wait to add to his 302 Premier League appearances.

"It was a fun year and I did enjoy being part of Serie A and part of Torino, but I'm ready to come back and looking forward to being part of this fantastic league again," said Hart.

The former Shrewsbury shot-stopper will get the chance to face his old club before the season starts, when the Hammers take on City in Iceland on August 8.

"It'll be fun to play against them because I'll be banned when it comes to the actual season, while I'm sure Manchester United will welcome me with open arms if I get the nod and start the season away at Old Trafford," Hart added.
