Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has thanked Torino fans after his loan spell at the Serie A club came to a close.
The 30-year-old made 36 appearances for the club in all competitions last season, helping them to a ninth-placed finish.
"Thank you Torino...I am so proud to have played for your special football club," Hart wrote on Instagram. "The way you have treated me and my family is something that we will never forget.
"I will forever support Torino for the rest of my days. I have met so many special people and this has been one of the greatest experiences of my life.
"I will come back to see you all one day so it is bye for now, enjoy an amazing summer."
Hart's current contract with Manchester City runs until 2019, but the England international was deemed surplus to requirements by Pep Guardiola at the beginning of the season as the former Barca boss signed Claudio Bravo.
Manchester City released Willy Caballero last week, alongside Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas and Bacary Sagna, but Hart's future remains uncertain with the club in talks over a world-record deal for Benfica goalkeeper Ederson, according to Sky sources.
Sky sources understand City, who finished third in the Premier League, are in talks to sign the 23-year-old Ederson for £34.9m.
On Sunday, the Brazilian admitted he had "probably" played his last game for Benfica, hours after clinching a campaign double with victory in the Portuguese Cup.
