I've so much to offer at Spurs, maintains Hart

Premier league

Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart insists he is ready to start again after joining Tottenham on a two-year contract.

The 33-year-old was a free agent after leaving Burnley at the end of the 2019-20 season.

Hart will provide competition alongside Paulo Gazzaniga for regular No.1 Hugo Lloris.

"There's no getting away from it, it's been a difficult couple of years for me personally but I feel I've got so much to give," he said.

"I'm here to work as a team player, whether my name is on the team sheet or not it's a squad effort. I know what it takes to win titles and change a squad's dynamic for the better.

"I've got huge admiration for Hugo, one of the world's greatest goalkeepers. I feel like I'm starting again, I quite enjoy that feeling. My body is certainly ready.

"I love the idea of European football. You can't help but get excited by this club.

"(They have) one of the world's best coaches (Jose Mourinho) and I've had a good relationship when playing against him, we've always found a way to come together and discuss the game."
