Perhaps no club would take him. If he was so keen to leave you'd imagine his agent would have been trying very hard to sort out a move.

Re: Joe Hart

It’s Joe Harts fault Vokes couldn’t hit a cows arse with a banjo for 6 months and it’s defin Hart’s fault Lennon has had a handful of good games in 2 years. Not Vokes' fault that we let in 40 goals up to and including the Everton game. A defensive masterclass up to the new year it certainly was not!

Looked to me like Hart was indirectly the reason - so not down to his skill of saving, not down to his handling, nor his kicking, but more communication with his defence.
