Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is confident that England stopper Joe Hart will sign a new contract with the club soon, according to Sky
The 27-year-old’s current contract expires in the summer of 2016 and after 259 appearances for the club his manager expects him to sign a new contract in the near future without hassle.
Barring a turbulent time at the start of last season that saw the England number one dropped after a string of high profile errors, he has been an ever present at City since signing back in 2006, and recovered well from being made substitute by returning and playing a key part in their title success.
Speaking about the contract Pellegrini said: “I think it’s an issue that we’re talking about.
“I think in the right moment, (we will) have the right solution. I think Joe wants to stay here and we want him to stay.”
City have spent a number of weeks and months securing various key player contracts to ensure they continue to keep hold of the players they value most.
Were Hart to sign a deal he would follow Samir Nasri, David Silva, Aleksander Kolarov, Edin Dzeko, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero in agreeing new terms at the Etihad Stadium.
