Former England international Burnley is not under contract at Turf Moor because only three appearances Claret this season.
His last Premier League match was a 5-1 defeat to Everton at home on Boxing Day 2018 with Tom Heaton then replacing him before Nick Pope returned from injury to make himself No.1 Sean Dyche.
The 33-year-old, who spent the 2016-17 season in Italy with Torino, is realistic about what will happen but believes he still has a lot to offer.
“I’m really open. I just want to play at the highest level I can,” Hart told The Guardian.
“In England, I felt I would not be able to do that. Maybe if I did not achieve what I have done in this league, I might not be so ready to stay away.
“Don’t get me wrong. I’d love to have a big chance in England, but that can be difficult.”
Hart returned to training with hers Burnley a teammate and confirmed the coronavirus pandemic only made his desire to be in the middle of the action once again stronger.
“This locking has made me realize how much I want to play soccer, “Said the former Premier League winner.
“What I want to do is be a big part of something. I understand I will not be a part of Real Madrid. I don’t think I lost my ability, but I know how football works. I just want to be a big part of a club and give everything for them. That hope burns me. ”
The 5-1 defeat that ended his journey as number one Clarets was etched in his memory, but Hart was philosophical about seeing his time as Dyche’s first choice ending after half the season.
“I spoke with Sean after he dropped me because I felt I had a strong season,” he said.
“The results were not good, we tried to play more football and it didn’t work.
“He just said: ‘Look, Joe, I think you are fantastic but for the good of the team I need to try this last change’. Look, Tom is coming and doing great. The team took it and returned to their old ways.
“Very difficult. That is no secret. Pure game time is difficult because, with the greatest respect to Burnley, they are not a trophy team. Staying in the Premier League is important. This is not my time now. But I am determined that it will come again. ”
