JOSE MOURINHO has labelled Tottenham's signing of Joe Hart as "very, very good business".
The former England stopper was brought in on a free as cover for Hugo Lloris and Mourinho says he will be useful in Spurs' "crazy fixture list".
Mourinho handed the 33-year-old his Tottenham debut during their pre-season game against Ipswich on Saturday.
And he has no doubt the former West Ham and Manchester City stopper will be a good addition to his squad – despite also having Paulo Gazzaninga, 28, on the books.
Hart signed a two-year-deal on August 18.

And Mourinho told Spurs' official website: "They are going to make our Club stronger.
“Michel (Vorm), I don’t know if he was in the last year of his career but he was close to it.
"And to bring in Joe, 75 caps for England, lots of experience…
"That’s great protection for us to have these three goalkeepers, all of them internationals, all of them good goalkeepers.
“You can sleep well because you know any injury, illness, any problems, we have three goalkeepers.
"And with some crazy fixtures that are waiting for us, playing all the competitions, starting the Carabao Cup immediately at the same time as Europa League and Premier League, even goalkeepers cannot play every match, so it’s very, very good business for us.”
Spurs are in the early stages of the Europa League having to play THREE qualifiers – the first of which will be played on September 17.
Hart joined his first Spurs training session last week.
And he said at the time: "I’ve got huge admiration for Hugo, one of the world’s greatest goalkeepers.
"I’m genuinely really excited to work with him, excited to push him, excited to learn from him.
"I can only look at things positively. I feel like I’m starting again and I quite enjoy that feeling.
"My body is certainly ready for me to start again.
"I’ve worked hard, I’ve tried to work as a person and a player and I’m ready to push and get back to the levels."
Before adding: "I love the idea of European football, I love the two games a week. You can’t help but get excited about this club."
Hart recently underwent an impressive body transformation as he honed his shredded physique while he hunted for a club.
