TURIN, Italy (AP) - England goalkeeper Joe Hart is on the verge of completing a loan move to Torino from Manchester City.

Hart, who was given permission to leave the England camp to fly to Italy, underwent a medical at the Serie A club on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old was greeted by around 200 fans loudly chanting his name at Torino’s headquarters, and there were further cheers and applause when he appeared at the window brandishing a club jersey with his name on the back.

Hart has lost his starting spot at City since new coach Pep Guardiola arrived during the offseason.

Hart follows a long list of English players to ply their trade in Italy, but is one of the few at the top of his game to move abroad in recent times.
