Tottenham goalkeeper Joe Hart is willing to take a pay cut to join Celtic, according to Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Hart not Postecoglou’s target
Links to Hart emerged last week via transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
He claimed that both clubs have opened talks over a deal for the 34-year-old, with reports elsewhere claiming Ange Postecoglou hasn’t requested the signing of Hart.
The Latest: Source shares update
A Celtic source informed Football Insider that the Hoops have been given encouragement over a deal for Hart.
The Spurs man, thought to be on £30,000-a-week in north London, is willing to accept a drop in salary ahead of a potential move to Parkhead.
Thoughts on Celtic's swoop for Joe Hart?
A smart move!
Could've done better!
The Verdict: A gamble?
With Hart seemingly not Postecoglou’s target, a move for the experienced ‘keeper could be a gamble.
He’s made just 13 appearances in the last two seasons for Burnley and Tottenham, so may not arrive in Scotland at his top level.
Bringing in Hart, who has plenty of experience in the Premier League, appears a smart move on paper, but due to his lack of game time, it could take him a while to get up to scratch.
