Hart goes to Birmingham on loan

Joe Hart will be dawning the colour Blue of Birmingham instead of the sky blue of the Mancs for the next season.

England U-21 joined Birmingham City on loan after he saw his place first being taken over by Shay Given in the January transfer window and only yesterday,Stuart Taylor arriving from Villa as the second choice goalkeeper for Mark Hughes.

Hughes told City's official website :

His contribution to the team prior to Shay Given's arrival was fantastic, but by loaning him to Birmingham, he will add invaluable experience to that already gained here at City.

I know he will relish the prospect of regular Premier League action, which is vital at this stage in his career.

Due to lack of opportunities at City,Hart also lost his place in the England senior squad and is currently with the U-21's in the European Championship.

He was clearly frustrated with the whole situation and said :

It has been tough. It's frustrating, but there's only one person can play in goal and Shay's doing that at the moment.

I've had to deal with it the best I can. It's not been ideal, but it's not the end of the world.

Its a good thing in my opinion for the youngster to get some talent exposed rather than be part of the reserves of a club.First team action is what a player should be after and not be expectant of a place where everyday there is a new signing.
