Joe Hart anticipates Manchester City will buy a few English stars in order to replace the outgoing James Milner and Frank Lampard.

The only other Englishman left at the Etihad is Richard Wright, who hasn't played a game for the club in three years, meaning City will need to recruit in order to mean required quotas.

I am not in the discussions of transfers, but after losing Frank and James, I imagine with home-grown (rules), it will be top of their list to bring in English players or to promote some of the (young) lads.

I am very confident in Man City, which is why I committed my future to the club.

What (the owners) are doing is fantastic. He is a great chairman. They have done amazing things since coming.

On a personal note, I am very sad to see (Milner) go as he is personal friend.
