Joe Hart makes a costly error against Inter Milan

Joe Hart's loan switch to Torino from Manchester City at the start of the season certainly raised a few eyebrows.

Pep Guardiola's preference for a goalkeeper who is more reliable with the ball at his feet saw the England No.1 shown the exit and Claudio Bravo brought in - although the less we say about that the better.

It was a bold move for Hart to make. Away from his home country into a foreign league with a different culture and a different style of football.

But he has taken it all in his stride and appears to be making the most of the experience.

Despite the introduction of Hart, Torino haven't exactly had the tightest defence in Serie A. In fact, before this weekend, they had the fourth worst goals against record in Italy's top flight.

Of course, the goalkeeper is usually the first person to look at when your team has conceded 46 goals from 28 games but statistics claim that Hart has only been culpable for two of them.

Well, you can probably make that three now after a horror moment in Torino's clash with Inter Milan on Saturday.

In the 27th minute, Geoffrey Kondogbia was given ample time and space inside Torino's box to shoot but in truth, produced a fairly tame effort on Hart's goal.

However, as you can see in the video below, the 29-year-old made a real mess of what should have been a routine save.

Somehow the ball squirms under his hands and into the net to break the deadlock.

Fortunately for the Man City loanee, Daniele Baselli restored parity for the hosts with a header less than five minutes later.

Nevertheless, with just a few months of the season remaining, there will be plenty of English clubs tracking Hart's form in Italy with a view to a possible move in the summer.

Safe to say Kondogbia's goal isn't a clip he will want to put on his season's highlight reel.
