Hugo Lloris has agreed to terms with Tottenham Hotspur over a new two-year contract, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The French World Cup winner’s current deal in north London expires at the end of the current campaign and is able to talk to overseas clubs over a pre-contract agreement under the Bosman ruling.

Alasdair Gold revealed earlier this week that the 35-year-old’s contract demands have been considered to be more than reasonable by the Tottenham hierarchy (Football.London).

Spurs boss Antonio Conte admitted ahead of the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Chelsea that talks between both parties had begun and he was confident of a positive outcome (The Athletic).

In the decade since the goalkeeper joined from Lyon, he has made close to 400 appearances and has shown since recovering from his dislocated elbow sustained at Brighton in late 2019 that he is still a world-class number one (transfermarkt).

Paul O’Keefe, who is well-known among Tottenham Twitter users had also revealed the news earlier this evening.

This is brilliant news for the club to have retained Lloris for a further two seasons and hopefully allows for further time to find a worthy successor with Pierluigi Gollini not looking anywhere close to ousting the Frenchman.
