Joe Hart still wants another chance to play at the top level in England but has admitted he might have to look elsewhere for regular football.

Joe Hart still wants to be the no 1 at an England side but knows the chances of that happening are rather slim.

The 33-year-old is a two-time Premier League winner with former side Manchester City and has racked up 75 international caps for England.

Things have changed and Hart is no longer the ‘formidable’ goalkeeper he used to be during his days at Manchester.

Hart is second choice at Turf Moor behind England international Nick Pope and the 33-year-old is available on a free transfer this summer.

In search of regular game-time once again, the veteran goalkeeper admits he might be forced to look abroad.

“I’m totally open. I just want to play at the highest level I can,” Hart told The Guardian.

“In England, I don’t feel I am going to be able to do that. Maybe if I hadn’t achieved what I’ve done in this league I might not be so ready to step away.

“Don’t get me wrong. I’d love to have another big chance in England, but it could be difficult.”

Joe Hart has only been in goal for Burnley three times this season and is eager to be a regular starter once again.

“All I want to do is be a big part of something,” he added.

“I understand I’m not going to be part of Real Madrid. I don’t think I’ve lost the ability, but I know how football works. I just want to be a big part of a club and give my all to them. That hope burns through me.”
