Hart’s link to Saints makes sense for agent

Joe Hart has been linked with a summer move to Southampton amid claims that Everton want Saints number one Fraser Forster.

The Daily Mail story, although looking a bit far-fetched, could have something in it, with both goalkeepers involved sharing the same agent – Jonathan Barnett’s The Stellar Group.

The agent could be on double commission this summer if both keepers are transferred, with Hart’s Manchester City career over and a permanent move back to England being sought.

City don’t want to sell the 29-year-old England international to a direct Premier League title rival and will probably decide that Southampton aren’t going to challenge in the next few years.

Everton are desperate to land a top-level keeper and would have no problem coming up with the expected £15million fee Saints would demand for Forster, who signed a new five-year deal last year.

Hart might also be keen to link up with Saints’ goalkeeper coach Dave Watson, who he has worked with at international level.
