Tottenham have confirmed the signing of free agent Joe Hart following his release from Burnley at the end of last season.
The two-time Premier League winner, who was once rated amongst the league’s best goalkeepers, has endured an extremely difficult period since he was dropped by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola at the beginning of the 2016-2017 campaign.
Hart has enjoyed loan spells at both West Ham and Italian outfit Torino before joining the Clarets permanently in the summer of 2018 in an attempt to get his career back on track and improve his chances of an England recall, but his struggles have continued throughout.
However, Mourinho has given the 33-year-old, who hasn’t featured in the Premier League since Boxing Day 2018, a lifeline and he is expected to compete with Paulo Gazzaniga for the number two spot.
Some Tottenham fans expressed their approval on Twitter following Hart’s arrival. Here are some of the best reactions.
