Joe Hart completed his loan switch to Torino on Wednesday and several international stars were reportedly poised for moves as the clock ticked down towards Europe’s transfer deadlines.

Spending by English Premier League clubs has broken through the one billion pounds (1.17 billion euros, $1.3 billion) barrier in one window for the first time, fuelling transfer activity across the continent.

England goalkeeper Hart joined modest Italian side Torino on a season-long loan after being frozen out by new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

“Suddenly (in) my career has been an important turning: it was a sign,” Hart said in a statement on Torino’s English-language website.

“Torino’s offer came in the right moment, with the right manner.”

City striker Wilfried Bony, who has also failed to win over Guardiola, was pictured at Stoke City’s training ground.

Bony tweeted: “It’s a new day and I look forward to a new exciting challenge.”

Samir Nasri, another City outcast, was thought to be close to joining Sevilla, while Eliaquim Mangala was reportedly due to sign for Valencia.

Mario Balotelli, Moussa Sissoko and Jack Wilshere were among the other players reportedly set for pastures new.

Balotelli, Liverpool’s wayward Italian striker, was on the verge of joining French club Nice on a season-long loan, having spent last season on loan at former club AC Milan.

“If the situation works out, maybe late in the day it will be done,” an official from Nice told French sports daily L’Equipe.

“If we don’t agree with Liverpool, he will leave again.”
