The transfer window, I always think, really kicks up a gear in June and now we are at the beginning of the month we’ll likely see rumours step up.
Of course, it makes it harder to decipher which ones are real and which are fake whilst there’s also plenty of suggestions floating around that fans discuss on social media.
One of those, then, is concerning Joe Hart with a fan posting the question whether we should go for him or, moreover, whether we’d even get him:

Here’s how the convo would go mate
Joe, Leeds in for you
Who’s the manager ? They have 1 but unsure if he’s staying
Do they pay good wages ? No
Have they signed/signing any big players ? No
Are they likely to be challenging for top 6 ? No
Ok, who else is interested in me !

The goalkeeper is obviously Premier League level despite his mistakes of late and I see no reason why he’ll come down to the Championship in all honesty.
It would be some signing, that’s for sure, but even on loan his wages would be a massive obstacle that I doubt we’d get over.
