Celtic target Joe Hart says he has a 'plan' to get back into football amid Hoops interest and that he's 'willing to have conversations' with clubs who will take a chance on him again.

The former Manchester City goalkeeper has had a rough time of things lately, most recently being unable to force his way into Burnley's starting 11 before he departed Turf Moor.

Having had an impressive trophy-laden career, Hart insists he won't allow his recent lack of game time affect him as he weighs up his next move. It comes as Celtic boss Neil Lennon was left frustrated at news that Fraser Forster will not be returning to Parkhead as he aims to fight for his Southampton spot.

Hart, 33, has been linked with Celtic as well as West Brom. "I don't have a football club but I've definitely got a plan," the England internationalist told BBC Sport. "I've definitely got a position that I've put myself in and I'm looking forward. Looking forward to the future, I've got nothing holding me back.

"I'm open-minded, I've got a good team around me, I'm willing to have conversations with anyone who really believes in me because that's all I need. I need someone to believe in me and I'll repay that faith.

"I remember who I am, being from Shrewsbury, playing for my local Sunday league team. From trying to get into the Shrewsbury Town first-team, I remember those steps. You talk about the fact that I was playing a pretty important role in a Champions League semi-final, my last England cap was against Brazil, drawing 0-0 at Wembley in front of 90,000 people.

"I know where I came from and I know how big an achievement that is, so the fact that I've had to sit on the bench for 18 months in the Premier League, it's not going to define me, it's not going to crush me. It's just that I need to take a different avenue, I need to dust myself off and go again."

Celtic are also keen on David Marshall for a potential return with Wigan Athletic plunging into administration.
