Others have them dance or make a speech on their first day. And he has been sporting a black eye all week after coming off worse in 50-50 with Andy Carroll in training.

'Nah, I spread for the ball. "I get hit in the face quite a lot, but this is the first time it has actually marked me.had a few verbal blows to the chin, though". It is a fitting visual metaphor for a player looking to take the Premier League by storm for a second time in his career, bruised but unbowed after his cold war with Pep Guardiola.

The England global, who spent last season on loan at Italian club Torino, is set to make his debut for West Ham against Manchester United on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

"I'm trying to make a point to Slaven Bilic, he's my coach", said Hart. They're my coaches. They're the people whose opinions I care about.

"When you've asked me questions I've always answered honestly, and ideally I wanted to be signing a permanent deal somewhere so I could set my life up and have a direction". I couldn't be any more grateful for the opportunity they've given me. It helped me to learn a different way of living and brought some new styles of football to me. different ideas, a different manager. There wasn't an terrible lot of movement goalkeeper-wise this summer so I'm very grateful to get this opportunity'.


Hart is determined to get as much first-team football as possible this season with the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation now less than a year away. Burnley's Tom Heaton, Everton's Jordan Pickford and Stoke City's Jack Butland are breathing down his neck.

"I want to be an England keeper playing for West Ham, I really do".

'I kept him updated with my situation, ' Hart said.

"I'd like to think I have come back from Italy a better keeper".

"It has been the same when I've been with England and any manager I've played under". This definitely fits this criteria. Big Fras [Fraser Forster] has signed a new deal at Southampton.


The England worldwide goalkeeper was once again deemed surplus to requirements at parent club Manchester City and will instead spend the campaign on loan at the London Stadium.

"It's a job at the end of the day but there are a lot of us, myself included, who just love playing football and I'm just lucky that it's my job".

'My feelings for Manchester City will never change, I'm eternally grateful to them as a football club. They took me as a 19-year-old boy from Shrewsbury Town, took something of a punt on me and I've had some fantastic times there and built some really great relationships. The fans have been so supportive of me, even in the past year. "I'm now on loan at West Ham and the 25 shirt I've enjoyed a lot of good times in it".

"I told him only if the club get a good offer for him, and plus first all if the club can find a good replacement, then maybe we can do him a favour".

"I want to go there on Sunday and win, whatever side of Manchester it is or whatever side of the country it is", he stresses.
