Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Joe Hart will be allowed to decide his own future amid interest from Celtic, according to Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge.
The Bhoys – fresh from getting their season off to a horrific start after exiting the Champions League in the second qualifying round for a second consecutive campaign earlier this week – have entered negotiations with Spurs over a deal for the former England international, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
Celtic are hoping to swoop after Spurs completed the signing of Atalanta shot-stopper Pierluigi Gollini, with the agreement being a season-long loan and an option to buy.
Gollini’s arrival will result in £50,000-a-week Hart, 34, being demoted to Nuno Espirito Santo’s third-choice goalkeeper.
Bridge has revealed the ball is in the former Manchester City and West Ham United goalkeeper’s court.
He told Football FanCast: “He had a couple of bad spells at Burnley and West Ham and all of a sudden he is at Tottenham Hotspur at the best training ground in Europe, so I can understand why he’s probably not in a rush to leave.
“Celtic are keen to get him. I don’t know how far that is down the line but they have made enquiries.
“I don’t even know if he will command a fee. It’s purely up to him because he knows he isn’t going to get any game time.”
