Joe Hart set to sign for Tottenham on free

Joe Hart is expected to join Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer after leaving Burnley at the expiry of his contract this summer.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing the former England No1 as he aims to increase the number of homegrown players in his squad.

With too many of his stars not qualifying as homegrown, the Portuguese is currently at risk of having to name reduced squads in Premier League and UEFA competition.

Hart will likely become third-choice goalkeeper behind starter Hugo Lloris and back-up Paulo Gazzaniga at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, replacing Michel Vorm who departed last month.
