Deal should be complete today. #mcfc #whufc see @MailSport (@AdamCrafton_) West Ham swapped between Adrian and Darren Randolph last season but bringing in Hart gives them a dependable and experienced option between the sticks. Pep Guardiola is content to move on the England international having brought in Claudio Bravo from Barcelona and Ederson from Benfica in the last two transfer windows. Hart had an up and down campaign on loan at Serie A side Torino last season but a fresh start back in the Premier League should do the former Birmingham loanee good.

Joe Hart has passed his medical ahead of his loan move from Manchester City to West Ham, according to Sky sources.

Hart is set to join on a season-long loan, although it is understood West Ham will have an option to buy the England international next summer.

The 30-year-old spent last season on loan with Serie A side Torino, having been deemed surplus to requirements at Manchester City following the arrival of manager Pep Guardiola.

City signed Claudio Bravo as their presumed No 1 'keeper following Guardiola's arrival and this summer they have added Brazilian Ederson to their goalkeeping ranks.

Sky Sports News HQ reported last week that the Hammers were hoping to finalise the deal for Hart within the next few days, while Hammers boss Slaven Bilic said recently that he was expecting imminent reinforcements.

"What we want is to bring in the quality that is going to improve our first XI," said Bilic.

"We have (former Manchester City defender) Pablo Zabaleta and I am really expecting to add a couple more soon."

Adrian, We Need To Have A Hart To Hart .
Apart from James Collins, the West Ham fans do not have a greater relationship than with Spanish goalkeeper Adrian. He is beloved by the club and always looks happy to be part of the club. However, his position as number one at the club is in jeopardy, as the Hammers are rumoured to be after Joe Hart. Adrian had a mixed season last year; he showed his positives and negatives, from the calamity against Stoke at home to the cat-like reflexes against Spurs. But his inconsistencies are too frequent. He is one of the best shot-stoppers in the division but he is too erratic. However, his reported replacement has had his fair share of gaffes. The Spaniard deserved to be dropped last season, and I welcomed Darren Randolph to challenge Adrian, but the Irishman did not show enough promise at all. He was abysmal by the end of his time in goal, and Adrian rightly retained the jersey. But despite all of Adrian’s good qualities, I feel his bad qualities outweigh them. Joe Hart is a better keeper, no one can deny that. However, he is far from perfect, as Euro 2016 showed that. But I would feel more comfortable and confident with the England keeper in the net. There may be fans who completely disagree but I feel Hart’s experience is vital for us, and someone of his quality should be respected. He was treated harshly by Man City to be replaced by Claudio Bravo, who has not done any better. Hart’s command of area is a vital reason for why I feel we need to look at him. He is streets ahead of Adrian in that department. He will push us up a level, and I think he could earn us a few extra points a season. I may be proved wrong if Hart does sign, but I feel this is the step up in class the club needs. Every year improvements need to be made by replacing first team players for better ones, and Hart is one of those players.
