Jamie O’Hara believes that Joe Hart will have made a good decision to join Tottenham Hotspur.
The 33-year-old left Burnley when his contract expired on 30 June having lost his place to Tom Heaton midway through the first season of a two-year deal and then spent the 2019-20 campaign on the bench behind Nick Pope.
Sky Sports claim that Hart has undergone a medical ahead of his free transfer to the Champions League finalists.
O’Hara claimed that the former England international is better off being an understudy to Hugo Lloris and utilising Tottenham’s impressive facilities at their new stadium and training ground rather than playing for a team in the lower half of the Championship such as Stoke City.
The former midfielder has tipped Hart to feature in the League Cup and FA Cup whilst also providing cover for Lloris, but will not be heading to North London to take over from the Frenchman.
“He’s thinking ‘Do I go to Stoke or be no.2 at Spurs & still get £70k-a-week?’”
“It’s a good move for someone who wants to watch a nice bit of football.”
“At 33 he’s happy to just be the no.2 with no pressure.”
