Hart set for Torino

Joe Hart is poised to sign for Torino today after Manchester City agreed a deal for the England international to join the Serie A club on loan for the season.
Hart will fly out to Italy for a medical, after being granted special dispensation by new England manager Sam Allardyce, and will complete his switch in the next 24 hours.
City's hierarchy stepped in to grant Hart his move, declining to demand a loan fee and also agreeing for Torino to pay just £50,000 a week of his £140,000-a-week wages.
Hart (29) was also a target for Sunderland but it is understood he had no interest in joining a club likely to be battling relegation and believes a fresh start in Turin is the best option.
