LONDON – Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has completed a loan move to Torino on Wednesday, signing a one-year contract with the Serie A club.

The 29-year-old England goalkeeper has lost his starting spot at City since Pep Guardiola arrived as coach during the offseason, falling to third choice behind new signing Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero.

Hart says "all of a sudden my career reached a turning point, I interpreted it as a sign of fate. And so I had to do something."

No financial details have been given but reports say City will pay 60 percent of Hart's salary.
