Joe Hart says that he will "more than likely" return to the Premier League after his loan spell at Torino ends.

The England No 1 goalkeeper is expected to leave Manchester City permanently this summer, having been deemed surplus to requirements by City manager Pep Guardiola.

With Claudio Bravo signed from Barcelona last summer and Willy Caballero vying for a starting spot this season at City, Hart was loaned out to Serie A with Torino.

While he will finish the season in Italy shortly, his future beyond this summer is unclear, although Hart believes the most likely destination will be in England and hopes that whatever happens next, his upcoming move will be of the permanent variety.

When asked if a Premier League return is the most likely outcome in the summer transfer window, the two time Premier League winner told Sky Sports' Soccer AM: "More than likely, I'd say, but that's me with no knowledge, I've got no firm contact with anybody, but whatever I'm doing I'd love to be permanent where I go.

"If it's back at Manchester City - which I don't see happening - then great, but other than that, another loan at my age I don't think is the right thing for me."
