Joe Hart appears not to be on Pep Guardiola's plans for Manchester City in the near future, and the English number one keeper could be on his way out in this transfer window.

According to reports in England, City and Hart are indeed listening to offers, but both the club and the player are only interested in loan offers at the moment. Hart wants to come back and fight for a spot next season, but understands that Guardiola will not play him as the starting keeper in this campaign, and wants to play regular minutes elsewhere to remain in the national team picture.

Reports also suggest that at least three teams could be interested in his signing: La Liga side Sevilla are looking for a top goalkeeper, and manager Jorge Sampaoli could be looking at Hart. Ronaldo Koeman's Everton have already signed Maarten Stekelenburg, but the Dutch manager wouldn't miss the opportunity to bring in Hart.

Another team linked with Hart is Borussia Dortmund. Roman Bürki is the undisputed starter for Thomas Tuchel's side, but the Swiss keeper is known for a few mistakes, and maybe Hart would be a better option as Champions League football awaits Dortmund.

As far as City's new keeper, Claudio Bravo, he's expected in Manchester next week after playing for Barcelona in the La Liga opening match against Real Betis this Saturday. As soon as Bravo arrives and is announced as the new Citizens goalie, expect Hart to quickly find a new club.
