JOE Hart, former Burnley and Manchester City goalkeeper, has joined Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer. Hart, 33, has signed a two-year deal with Spurs after leaving the Clarets when his contract expired on 30 June.
He fell out of favour at Manchester City after manager Pep Guardiola arrived in 2016, with loan spells at Torino and West Ham preceding a 2018 move to Burnley. Hart won the last of his 75 England caps in November 2017. He lost his place to Tom Heaton midway through the first season of a two-year contract at Turf Moor and then spent the 2019-20 on the bench behind Nick Pope.
Hart was the first-choice goalkeeper for England at the 2014 World Cup and 2016 European Championship. He won four Premier League Golden Glove awards and was twice named in the PFA Team of the Year during a 12-year spell at City.
Tottenham announced his signing on Tuesday and he will compete with Paulo Gazzaniga to be Hugo Lloris’ deputy at the North London club.
