Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday announced the signing of goalkeeper Joe Hart. The former England goalkeeper, who was at the end of his contract with Burnley, arrives at no cost to the London team with whom he signed a two-season contract.
At 33, Hart was on Burnley’s reserve, whose goalkeeper Nick Pope was considered one of the best last season. At Tottenham, he will have to fight for the position with Frenchman Hugo Lloris and Argentine Paulo Gazzaniga.
“I’m here to help the team in every way I can, whether on the pitch, off the pitch, I’m here to try to push the club forward,” Hart said in an interview on the Spurs’ official website. The goalkeeper is Tottenham’s second signing in the transfer window. The other was Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, formerly of Southampton, in a deal worth approximately £ 15 million.
