Tottenham took a punt in the summer by signing Joe Hart on a free transfer, which was a deal that was greeted with minimal reaction from fans and he was expected to be on the fringes of the squad.
It was a low-risk deal for Spurs on a free transfer, as they added the 75-time capped England international to their squad.
Despite winning two Premier League titles earlier in his career with Manchester City, the 33-year-old has had a bad time of it in recent years and played just three games across all competitions last season for Burnley.
But he shot-stopper has found a new confidence at the beginning of the campaign and he’s already played three times so far this season in a Spurs shirt.
He kept a clean sheet on Thursday night during the Europa League group stage 3-0 win over LASK and it looks like he could be a regular in the cup competitions.
Hart has managed to make himself the second-choice option in net for the North London club ahead of Paulo Gazzaniga and his low-risk addition has paid off in a big way.
Not only has he looked assuring in his performances so far, but he’s been such a vocal figure that organises the defence in front of him and without the crowd it’s clear he’s the loudest man on the pitch.
His winning mentality may also be rubbing off on some of his teammates in the dressing room and it’s great to see him playing again with some confidence, as he’s still got great reflexes and the 33-year-old will still hope he’s still got a good few years ahead of him.
Spurs have made some excellent signings recently with the likes of Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Pierre-Emile Hobjerg, but Hart is proving to be a real astute piece of business.
