Burnley’s Joe Hart would be short-term fix for Leeds United’s goalkeeper issues

Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart is wanted by Preston.

Preston North End have offered to take Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart on loan for the rest of the season, according to The Sun.

Hart has lost his place in the Burnley starting line-up with Tom Heaton returning between the sticks.

And with Nick Pope returning from injury, Hart’s role at Burnley is diminishing.

After two unsuccessful loan spells with Torino and West Ham, Burnley was meant to be a fresh start for Hart.

The 75-cap former England international joined Burnley for a Europa League campaign.

But they have since been knocked out of Europe and now they are deep in relegation trouble.

 

With third place looking likely for the 31-year-old, a loan move to the Championship could save his career.

But if he is willing to consider Preston, Leeds must enter the race for Hart this month.

Goalkeeper has become a problem position at Elland Road with loan stopper Jamal Blackman heading back to Chelsea after breaking his leg.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell has been the first-choice between the posts but has made some costly errors.

Hart’s arrival would add competition for places with Peacock-Farrell and the young Northern Ireland international would learn from Hart’s experience.

With a point to prove, Hart could turn out to be a shrewd loan acquisition for Leeds, strengthening their bid for promotion.
