Former West Ham United striker, Frank McAvennie has said that hanging on to Hugo Lloris would be a smart move from Daniel Levy amidst reports that the goalkeeper could look to extend his stay at the club.

Lloris has been a fantastic servant for Tottenham since arriving at the club from Lyon nine years ago. 

With the Spurs captain set to enter the final 12 months of his contract, there has been plenty of speculation about his future over the last few months.

Some sources previous indicated that a return to France is on the cards for the goalkeeper, with Pairs Saint-Germain and his former club Nice both being mooted as potential destinations for the Tottenham man.

However, reports in the British press suggested earlier this week that the 34-year-old had held positive talks with Levy about his future and was set to sign a contract extension with the club. 

McAvennie believes that the Tottenham chairman has made the right call as Lloris still has a few years left in him at the top level. 

When asked if it was a prudent decision to hold on to the goalkeeper, the pundit told Football Insider: “I would think so.

“34 is nothing for a good goalkeeper. They need to keep hold of their good players. 

“They have a wonderful new stadium and lots of good players but they might all leave. We’ve seen what is happening with Kane. 

“They could lose a lot of big assets this summer so keeping someone like Lloris around is a good move. Levy has actually done well there.”
