Noble on Hart

Mark Noble believes that impending arrival Joe Hart "deserves a little more respect".

Noble, speaking to Sky Sports this afternoon from West Ham's training camp in Austria insisted that the England #1, whom he used to play alongside for the England Under 21s had been "fantastic" during his career - despite being shipped out on loan to Italy by parent club Manchester City lat season.

"I've known Joe for a long time," said Hammers captain Noble. "We played for England U21s together years ago. He is obviously a fantastic goalie, but at the minute he is not our player.

"In my opinion, he has been a little bit hard done by in recent years. He has been fantastic for England and for his club for the last 10 years and he probably deserves a little bit more respect."

Hart, 30, is currently on his way to London ahead of a medical and is expected to complete a season-long loan move to West Ham within the next 48 hours. He is set to join the rest of the squad at their Austrian training camp in Bad Waltersdorf once done.
