Given urges Hart to stay at City

Given replaced Hart as No 1 at Eastlands when he joined City in an £8million deal from Newcastle United.

He said: “It’s going to be difficult for Joe but, hopefully, we can work together.

“It’s tough returning to the reserves. It happened to me at Blackburn but it’s a learning curve.

“Joe’s only 21 and could have 20 years left in the game.”
