Football: Hart seals Torino move amid transfer scramble

LONDON, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 31th August, 2016) - Joe Hart completed his loan switch to Torino on Wednesday and several international stars were reportedly poised for moves as the clock ticked down towards Europe's transfer deadlines. Spending by English Premier League clubs has broken through the one billion Pounds (1.17 billion Euros, $1.3 billion) barrier in one window for the first time, fuelling transfer activity across the continent.

England goalkeeper Hart joined modest Italian side Torino on a season-long loan after being frozen out by new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. "Suddenly (in) my career has been an important turning: it was a sign," Hart said in a statement on Torino's English-language website. "Torino's offer came in the right moment, with the right manner." City striker Wilfried Bony, who has also failed to win over Guardiola, was pictured at Stoke City's training ground. Bony tweeted: "It's a new day and I look forward to a new exciting challenge."
