Alex Bruce reckons Jose Mourinho will be “delighted” that Tottenham signed Joe Hart on a free transfer.
The former Premier League defender, speaking exclusively to Football insider Assistant editor Russell Edge insists the England international will have a lot to offer Spurs as a back-up option between the sticks.
Tottenham confirmed on Tuesday that the 32-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal as he follows £ 15million Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and £ 500,000 Alfie Devine to north London on their third signing summer.

Spurs let Michel Vorm leave at the end of his contract this summer to leave Mourinho with Hugo Lloris and Paulo Gazzaniga as senior goalkeeper options.
Bruce believes Hart is a smart signing for Tottenham and insists the Portuguese manager will be very happy to close the deal.
Bruce said Football insider: “I think it’s a good deal. Joe has had his ups and downs, he’s been hammered, but over the course of his career he’s been a good goalie as well.
“The fact that he has moved to Tottenham is great for him. This will provide additional cover in the goalie areas for Spurs and Jose is delighted to bring him in.
Hart, who won two Premier League titles with Manchester City and made 75 appearances for England, only played three times for Burnley last season as he fell behind Nick Pope in the pecking order.
He left the Clarets after playing just 24 games in a two-year spell at Turf Moor.
