FORMER England keeper Joe Hart has joined Celtic on a £1million permanent transfer from Tottenham, according to reports.
The 34-year-old ex-Manchester City man is said to have signed a deal worth £15,000 a week as he crosses the border to join up with the Scottish side.
Sky Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Done deal and here-we-go.
“Joe Hart joins Celtic on a permanent deal from Tottenham, £15k per week as salary. Medical and official announcement this week.”
Hart joined Spurs on a free transfer at the beginning of last season, agreeing a two-year deal with the Lilywhites.
But he did not feature in a single Premier League game for the North London outfit, largely being used in the Europa League.
And Hart hinted he could be on his way out last week after returning to training with Spurs.
Alongside a photo of him training, he wrote: “Nothing but focus, no matter what #relentless.”
Hart made 75 appearances as England’s No1 keeper but has not featured for the national team since 2017.
He was also ousted by Man City boss Pep Guardiola in 2016 and was farmed out on loan to Serie A side Torino.
Following a poor spell in Italy, Hart then had another loan spell, this time back in England with West Ham.
After one season in East London, he joined Burnley on a permanent transfer and spent two years with the club before being released.
That led to Hart looking for a new team, with Spurs eventually coming in for him as a cover for Hugo Lloris.
