Joe Hart wants to stay at Torino next season but the Serie A club cannot afford to permanently sign the England international, according to head coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.
The 29-year-old is on loan from Manchester City following Pep Guardiola's decision to sign Claudio Bravo in August.
On Thursday, Torino formally requested another year-long loan for Hart, who has kept just three clean sheets in 30 appearances for the 10th-placed Serie A side.

Mihajlovic told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Hart wants to stay at Torino but we are all aware, both him and the club, that we can't buy him.
"At the most we could take him on loan for another year but that depends on both Manchester City and him.
"We will need to know if Hart is going to be here next year because if he's not then we'll need to change the way we play."
Earlier this week, City boss Guardiola rebuffed a question about whether Hart could have his loan spell in Turin extended.
"At the end of the season we are going to speak about the players who are under contract next year and about the loan players," he said.
