Mark Hughes expects goalkeeper Joe Hart to sign a new deal at Manchester City soon.

The 21-year-old, who moved to Eastlands from Shrewsbury two years ago, is under contract until the summer of 2010 but turned down an offer at the end of last season.

City opened talks with Hart last month, and manager Hughes said on Friday: "It's progressing well. It's something that I think all parties want to conclude. Joe's an exceptionally talented young goalkeeper and we're very pleased to have him at the club."

He added: "We'd like to get it done as quickly as possible. We've been able to get Michael Johnson done, which was really important.

"The young players that we have at the club are important to where we want to go and obviously Joe comes into that category. We want him to be here for many seasons."
