Burnley’s summer signing, Joe Hart says his decision to join the Clarets was a very good one as the club is the right place for him.
The former Manchester City goalkeeper became Sean Dyche’s second summer signing at Turf Moor as the club has not been busy in the transfer market.
The 31-year who signed a two years deal on Tuesday wished his former club good luck and expressed his readiness to begin a new chapter with Burnley.
He said, “It’s definitely the right time for me to move on,” he told the club’s official website.
“They (Manchester City) are doing fantastic and I’m very happy for them. They need to go on and do their thing and I need to do mine.
“I feel good. I feel like I’m in the right place and I feel like this is my time to kick on now.
“I didn’t really think this was going to be an option. There is a fantastic goalkeeping department but there was a slot for me and I really like I can do something and help this club go in the direction it wants to go.
“Everything has really impressed me. I’ve heard such good things about the atmosphere.
“They say it’s priceless but to be part of a team where everyone is pushing in the same direction is not as normal as you would expect it to be.
“I heard that was the vibe and I’ve come here the first day, and you can just see it. It just stinks of it. Everyone wants to play for each other, everyone wants to win and everyone wants to do their best.”
The former England number 1played 350 games at the Etihad stadium and made 75 appearances for the Three Lions.
He was on loan to Torino before moving to West Ham last season for another loan spell.
