Joe Hart's agent Jonathan Barnett has told Sky Sports News HQ that they are yet to discuss the goalkeeper's future with Manchester City.

Reports in the English press on Thursday claimed Hart could stay in Serie A for another season if it helped City sign much sought-after striker Andrea Belotti in the summer.

England number one Hart has been on loan with Torino since August after being told he was not a part of Pep Guardiola's plans for the side.

Barnett, director of renowned player agency Stellar Group, said: "(His future) is not something we've discussed with Manchester City.

"There are plenty of conversations to be had with them but there will be lots of options open to Joe because he's one of the best goalkeepers in the world."

Earlier this week, Torino's president Urbano Cairo said he thought Hart would be "happy to remain" at the Piedmont club, but added that it "depends on City".

The 29-year-old Hart has so far made 27 appearances for Sinisa Mihajlovic's side, who are currently ninth in the Italian top flight.
