Free-agent Joe Hart has reiterated his intentions to play at a top-level when he makes his next move, with West Brom reportedly interested in the stopper.

The Sun journalist Alan Nixon reported recently that the Baggies are definitely interested in the two-time Premier League winner.

Alongside Albion, the likes of Celtic are also said to be interested after Hart left Burnley at the end of his last contract at Turf Moor.

So, with a couple of big clubs interested, what has Hart said about his next move? The keeper believes he is ready for whatever is thrown at him.

“I’ve put myself in a position where there’s not a lot of places that haven’t heard of me as a goalkeeper, haven’t heard of me for what I can do,” he said, via Birmingham Live.

“I’d like to think I’m always going to have those links. Well, I know, I strongly believe I can play at the top level, but football’s about politics, it’s not necessarily about ability.

“I’m going to give myself the best opportunity to play at the highest level possible, and when I do get that chance, I’m going to be ready.”

Birmingham Live has reported that Hart would come to the Hawthorns to offer more competition for Sam Johnstone next season.

Ali Al-Habsi was released recently after failing to agree a short-term extension at the Hawthorns, although Jonathan Bond did put pen-to-paper on a deal.

Johnstone would certainly be first-choice in whatever division the Baggies are in, and that is something that could deter Hart after his disappointing spell at Burnley.

The 33-year-old only made 22 appearances in the past two seasons under Sean Dyche, and it could be even less in the Midlands.
