West Ham make decision after reported move for £120k-a-week man – Insider
West Ham are not interested in keeping goalkeeper Joe Hart on loan after this season, according to an Insider.
The Daily Mirror had claimed that they would look to strike a new deal for the player who is reportedly costing them £120k-a-week.
A report in the Sun from last summer claimed that Man City would contribute £55k-a-week towards his £175,000 wages, leaving the remainder for West Ham to stump up.
However, Hart has made a series of high-profile mistakes this season, the latest coming in the last Premier League game against Stoke.
Hart gifted Stoke a goal but Andy Carroll rescued a point late on, and manager David Moyes admitted he would have a decision to make in the next game.
One West Ham fan went onto Twitter and asked if the claim that West Ham were set to move for Hart again was true.

Football Insider verdict:
West Ham fans will be mightily relieved about this. Hart isn’t the worst goalkeeper in the Premier League but he’s one of the best paid and West Ham can get much, much better for the money. They certainly can’t afford to be paying a player £120k-a-week to sit on the bench. Ben Foster and Fraser Forster are two that come to mind, from probably relegated clubs West Brom and Southampton. One of those veterans, plus a talented youngster to bring through would be a much better option than Hart. Most West Ham fans would probably prefer to see Adrien played instead of Hart. Either way it seems that the England international’s time at the London Stadium is drawing to a close. If he’s dropped for the game this weekend, he might already have made his last appearance for the club.
