England goalkeeper Joe Hart would be "happy to stay" at Torino beyond the end of his loan spell, according to the Serie A club's president Urbano Cairo.
Hart left Manchester City last summer after being told he was surplus to requirements by manager Pep Guardiola and joined Torino on a season-long loan.
Cairo claims Hart, who has featured 26 times for the Italians, would be receptive to the idea of staying in Turin beyond the end of the current campaign.
"We have an excellent relationship with him," Cairo said.
"He is happy to stay in Turin and we can work on it.
"It depends on City, but I think Hart would be happy to remain. We'll see what City have in mind and want to do."

Hart admitted to Sky Sports in December that he sees his long-term future away from the Etihad and Guardiola has since expressed his happiness with current City goalkeepers Willy Caballero and Claudio Bravo, indicating no way back for the 29-year-old.
Sky sources understand West Ham are also interested in signing Hart in the summer, with the Hammers keen to bolster their goalkeeping ranks ahead of next season.
