City on Hart:

Joe was signed by Stuart Pearce in May 2006 from the player’s home town club Shrewsbury Town.

His professional career with the Shrews began in the 2003/04 season, when he played a handful of games, before becoming first choice keeper in the 2005/06 campaign.

He was England under 19 ’keeper when he joined the Blues and made his first team debut on October 14, 2006, against Sheffield United and he kept a clean sheet in a goalless draw.

Joe was loaned out to Tranmere at the start of January 2007 and was almost immediately selected for England's Under 21s. He made a second half appearance against Spain in a 2-2 draw.

Further experience was gained on loan at Blackpool and when he came back to City he eventually beat off the challenge of Sweden number one Andreas Isaksson and Kasper Schmeichel to become Sven-Goran Eriksson’s first choice.

He won his first England cap in June 2008 against Trinidad and Tobago but having started that season as number one was replaced by Shay Given in January. Having topped 50 first team appearances, Hart spent the summer of 2009 playing for England’s Under 21s in the European Championships in Sweden. The dramatic penalty shoot-out in the semi final saw Joe save a couple, and score one - but a yellow card, his second of the tournament, meant that he had to sit out the final.

Around this time his season-long loan to promoted Birmingham City was also confirmed. A resounding success at St Andrews, he was named in the PFA Team of the Year and included in Fabio Capello's England squad for the World Cup. 

He did not play during that ill-fated campaign, but he impressed Roberto Mancini enough in pre-season to get the nod as City's first-choice goalkeeper for the start of 2010/11.

From the first match of that season when Joe was awarded man of the match in the 0-0 draw with Tottenham, he hasn't looked back and has cemented his reputation as one of the most assured goalkeepers in Europe, becoming England's undisputed no.1 and earning the Golden Gloves award for the Premier League in City's title-winning 2011/12 campaign.

Joe is one of the elder statesmen in the City ranks now after his six years at the club and his slow motion reaction to Sergio Aguero's last minute winner against QPR on the final day has become one of the website's most popular videos and showed just how much the club's recent success means to him.

One of England's top performers in last summer's Euro 2012, Hart will be looking to carry the momentum from those sterling performances in Poland and Ukraine through the 2012/13 campaign and continue on his path towards being considered one of City's best-ever goalkeepers.

Joe won his second Premier League title in 2013/14 and was also a Capital One Cup winner as City beat Sunderland 3-1 at Wembley.
