Manuel Pellegreni insists Joe Hart will not leave Manchester City in January, but refused to offer any assurances as to when the keeper will be reinstalled as his No1.

Hart will face Viktoria Plzen in tonight’s Champions League dead-rubber at the Etihad and boss Pellegrini said: “There’s lot of news about five, six, seven goalkeepers that we want to buy, but it’s not true. Of course he stays. There is no chance for Joe Hart to go out from this squad in January.”

Yet Pellegrini would not discuss whether England star Hart would dislodge Costel Pantilimon for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Swansea, saying: “On Wednesday he’ll start, then the next game we’ll talk about who will start playing.”

Best pal Ben Foster believes Hart should have been given a holiday, saying : “Hart is one of the best goalkeepers I’ve ever trained with.

“When you are England’s No1 everything’s under the microscope.

“If I was Hart’s manager I’d just put a big arm around him, tell him to go on holiday for a couple of weeks, clear his head, relax and then come back.”
