Spurs signing Hart: I'm here to push Lloris

Joe Hart is delighted to be already in action for Tottenham.

The former Burnley goalkeeper featured for the first time in the pre-season victory over Ipswich Town on Saturday, when manager Jose Mourinho started Hugo Lloris before playing both Hart and Paulo Gazzaniga in the second half.

Hart told the Spurs website: “I've huge admiration for Hugo, one of the world's greatest goalkeepers and I'm genuinely really excited to work with him, excited to push him, excited to learn from him.

“I'm here to work as a team player. I'm a team player, always have been, always will be, whether my name is on the teamsheet or not. It's a squad effort, and I know what it takes to win titles, I know what it takes to change a club's dynamic for the better.

“I've been on the lucky side of that where I've been the guy who has been named on the teamsheet and coming here, Hugo has huge respect at the Club, and fully deserves it, and I'm looking to help the Club, I'm not coming here for any other reason. I'm here to help the team any way I can, on the field, off the field, I'm here to try to push the Club forward."
