Burnley manager Sean Dyche has praised new goalkeeper Joe Hart, insisting that the keeper is finally coming of age.

Hart went from being the first choice goalkeeper in the English National team during the World Cup qualifiers to being completely left out of the World Cup squad. This was largely due to him losing his place at Manchester City and having unsuccessful loan spells at Torino and West Ham.

But after completing a move to join the Clarets, manager Sean Dyche believes the former Shrewsbury shot-stopper has a lot to offer the team and he’s excited about his arrival.

“I think he enjoyed the fact he’s come into a group who accept people very quickly, and we probably weren’t planning on him playing,” Dyche said, according to Burnley Express.

“Anders (Lindegaard) had a sore thigh so he came straight in, and I thought he did very well. “We know the experience he’s got, I still think he’s a keeper who’s got more, he’s coming into his prime. “We’ve got Tom Heaton as well, that’s fantastic in itself, Anders and Legz, and obviously with what’s happened with Popey…

“I think it was a wise choice we’ve made, and a wise choice he’s made hopefully, because hopefully he’ll enjoy his time here.”
