Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris has rebuffed early approaches from the club over a new contract, according to Football Insider.

The French World Cup winner is currently under contract with the North Londoners until June 2022 (transfermarkt) and has been at the club since joining from Lyon in a £7.9million deal in August 2012 (Independent).

Lloris has been linked with a potential return to his homeland with Spurs said to be preparing for interest from Paris Saint-Germain now that Mauricio Pochettino is now their new head coach.

The 32-year-old revealed last June that he was still in regular contact with the Argentine and his backroom staff following their dismissal from Spurs in November 2019 by claiming that he considers them to be more than just former colleagues (The Guardian).

The report claims that Spurs want Lloris to sign a new long-term deal which would see him spend the rest of his career at the club and do not want him to enter the last year of his contract without an agreement.

Spurs reportedly offered the shot-stopper, who earns over £100,000-a-week a lucrative deal, only to see it rejected by the player and have lined up further talks in the hope that an agreement can be reached.

The next few months could prove to be pivotal in Lloris’ future at the club, it would be difficult to imagine that Daniel Levy would allow the Frenchman to enter the last year of his deal which would see the club potentially lose out on millions of pounds of a transfer fee.

Lloris has looked back to his best this season with a string of impressive displays, having overcome the lack of form he suffered prior to his elbow injury at the end of 2019.
