Danny Mills claims his former teammate Joe Hart would be a “fabulous addition” to Leeds United and believes a summer deal is “highly possible” if promoted.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the full-back, who played with Hart at Manchester City suggested the 33-year-old can “resurrect his career” at Elland Road.
Hart is available on a free transfer on 30 June after a two-year spell at Burnley.
As revealed by Football Insider the two-time Premier League winner is willing to take a pay-cut to join the Whites this summer.
Mills provided a glowing reference for the former England number one.
“I think Harty is a great goalkeeper,” he told Football Insider. “I know him well from when he first came to Manchester City.
“He will have learned an awful lot. He has a huge amount of experience.
“If you have a goalkeeper like that, if Leeds can get him on a free transfer, it would be a fabulous addition. He works incredibly hard, he is incredibly dedicated and is very fit.
“Keepers go on until they are 40 odd. Look at David Seaman, Schmeichel and David James. It is highly possible that deal can be done.”
Hart, who has 75 England caps, has been limited to just three appearances this campaign, having played second fiddle to Nick Pope at Turf Moor.
Leeds are expected to be in the market for a new number one despite the club expected to exercise a £5million option in Illan Meslier’s loan deal to make the deal permanent.
