Following Pierluigi Gollini’s arrival from Atalanta, Joe Hart has fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham.

Hart arrived in North London last summer on a free transfer after his contract with Burnley had come to an end

Tottenham completed the season-long loan move for Gollini last weekend, which includes the option to make the deal permanent.

The former England international has reportedly been told that he is not part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans for this season (Football.London).

Former Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor believes that the 34-year-old would be a shrewd signing for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

He told Football Insider when asked whether the Hoops should look to bring the experienced stopper to Celtic Park: “100 per cent.

“Hart’s got that experience, he’s played at the highest level with his club and country.

“He’s someone who can come in and offer some good experience to the team. He can challenge to become that number one as well.

“For me, it would definitely be a good signing. I’m sure Joe Hart would love to try out a different league at a big club like Celtic.”

This would be the perfect move for Hart. Whilst looking solid for the most part during last season, Hart and Lloris are both not getting any younger and it makes sense to bring in someone to potentially succeed Lloris.

Whiteman seems like a perfectly capable third choice based on his pre-season performances and therefore, Hart moving away seems best for all parties and will help to ease Tottenham’s wage bill.
