Leeds United can solve goalkeeping conundrum with move for Joe Hart

The ex-England man is set to leave Burnley this summer.

Leeds United will hope to finally end their long exile away from the Premier League when the new season gets underway.

The Whites were denied in the play-off semi-final by Derby County during the 2018/19 campaign.

Boss Marcelo Bielsa has pledged his future to the club and that is one aspect that bodes well for next season.

In order to achieve their promotion goal, the Argentine boss will hope to add some players to his ranks during the summer.

One area where improvements might look to be made is between the posts in goal.

Kiko Casilla’s lapse in concentration during the play-off semi-final second leg essentially cost his team the match and it remains to be seen if he has a future at the club.

 

Bailey Peacock-Farrell was the custodian for the first half of the campaign but was dropped for Casilla, suggesting that Bielsa doesn’t overly trust him.

The Sun has suggested that Joe Hart is being lined-up for a move to Stoke having fallen down the pecking order at Burnley.

If the former England stopper is available, then Leeds should swoop for his services.

The 32-year-old is still more than capable of doing a job in the Championship and Hart would relish the chance to prove his critics wrong at a massive club.

Burnley only paid £3.5 million for the stopper last summer but would let him leave for a fraction of that.

If Bielsa is looking for a safe pair of hands, that won’t break the bank then Hart is the man he should be pursuing this summer.
