Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart looks ripped as he searches for new club

Joe Hart seems intent on ensuring he's in tip-top condition for the new season.

The former England goalkeeper is a free agent after being released by Burnley this summer and is on the lookout for a new club.

And the shot-stopper, who won two Premier League titles with Manchester City, has spent the lockdown period building up his stregnth.

The experienced footballer shared a series of workout pictures – which were taken by former City club photographer Sharon Latham – which showed off his ripped physique to his 1.2m Instagram followers.

He captioned his post: "All I can do at this moment is push the guy in the mirror…. You dream. You plan. You reach.

"There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself and those around you, there are no limits."

Mirror Sport revealed in June that Shrewsbury made an ambitious bid to bring free agent Hart back to the club.

Shrews boss Sam Rickett revealed he offered Hart the chance to return to his hometown club, where he began his professional career 16 years ago.

Hart, 33, has been released by Burnley after two years at Turf Moor and Ricketts spoke to the former England and Manchester City No 1 about rejoining the League One side.

Hart, who made 58 appearances for Shrewsbury before joining City in 2006, told Ricketts he may return when he stops playing and that he hopes to join a top-flight club in the meantime.

Ricketts said: “In terms of interest, from our part yes. Joe would have an interest, but not so much as in coming back to play.

“He’s still at a level where he can play at a much higher level, not just in this country but abroad as well.

“It’s something that I put to him and his people, I said ‘do you fancy coming back?’. But he’s ready to continue his career at the highest possible level.

“He has interest from top-level teams so it’s not going to be one for us. Sentiment doesn’t rule the head on this one.”
