The Citizens have sold Joe Hart, who had been with the club for 12 years, to Burnley in a deal understood to be worth £5 million (R87 million).

Hart has signed a two-year-deal with the Clarets and will wear the No. 20 shirt for Sean Dyche's team, who were in need for a new goalkeeper after Nick Pope picked up a long-term injury recently.

"Joe joined as a young lad from Shrewsbury and leaves a City legend," City captain Vincent Kompany said in a media statement by the Manchester club.

"When you look at the club he joined and the club as it is now, we have come so far during his time in Manchester and Joe has been a huge part of that.

"Those saves against Dortmund and Barcelona, that hug with Gael (Clichy) in 2012, these are moments we won't ever forget.

"It's been an absolute pleasure to play alongside him for so many years and I know I speak on behalf of every City fan when I say I hope he means as much to his next club as he has meant to us."

Hart leaves City after 348 appearances, and helped the club lift two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two League Cups.
