Joe Hart is undergoing a medical at Tottenham ahead of a move to the club on a free transfer.

Hart will compete with Paulo Gazzaniga for Hugo Lloris’ No 1 spot as goalkeeper in Jose Mourinho’s squad. The 33-year-old became a free agent after his contract came to an end at Burnley at the end of last season, in a campaign where he made just three appearances in all competitions for the Clarets in 2019/20.

He started one match in the EFL Cup and two in the FA Cup, spending the season as the second choice goalkeeper at Turf Moor behind Nick Pope.

Hart would become Tottenham’s second signing of the summer transfer window, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg having arrived from Southampton for an undisclosed fee.

Hart won the Premier League title twice, the League Cup twice and one FA Cup during his time at Manchester City, but has struggled for form and regular first-team action in recent campaigns. The former England No 1, who holds 75 caps, was considering a move abroad earlier this summer in search of more game-time.

Earlier, Hart said, “I’m totally open. I just want to play at the highest level I can. In England, I don’t feel I am going to be able to do that. Maybe if I hadn’t achieved what I’ve done in this league I might not be so ready to step away.”

“Don’t get me wrong. I’d love to have another big chance in England, but it could be difficult.”

Hart went on loan to Serie A side Torino from Man City during the 2016/17 campaign.
