And Hart wants to emulate his hero by making the national No 1 slot his own - just like old 'Safe Hands' did between 1996 and 2002.
He said: "David Seaman was just the man. As a boy, when you said "England goalkeeper", it was David Seaman. That was it. No questions, no ifs or buts.
"He turned out on a regular basis and made the job look so easy. I'd absolutely love that - but I'm a long way from doing that at the moment.
"I keep asking him what he was like and he says he was just unbelievable to be around. He just made goalkeeping look easy."
