England goalkeeper Joe Hart says he is “surplus to requirements” at Manchester City and does not see himself playing for the Premier League club again.

Hart joined Italian side Torino on a season-long loan in August after being told he was free to leave City by manager Pep Guardiola.

The 29-year-old added that he saw the Spaniard’s decision to drop him coming.

“If you’re not going to win there is no point in fighting, especially someone as powerful as that,” Hart said.

However, Hart believes the decision was “nothing personal” and said he respects Guardiola’s honesty.

Guardiola has said he will not make a decision on Hart’s future until the end of the season – but it is expected the keeper will leave the club for good in the summer.
