Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart admits he would consider going out on loan again if he does not get regular first-team football.

England squad member Hart spent last year at Birmingham with Shay Given occupying the goalkeeper's spot at Eastlands but has returned to City for the new season. He is ready to fight Given for the number one jersey but admits the prospect of sitting on the bench is unappetising.

"It doesn't really interest me if I'm honest, I've played a lot of football now and that's all I want to do," he told Five Live's Sportsweek.

"At the moment all I'm doing is playing football in the first team."

Asked whether he would consider another loan move, Hart said: "It wouldn't be up to me, Manchester City are in charge of me at the moment but if I wasn't playing, I suppose I would have to reconsider."
