Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Hugo Lloris has signed a new two-and-a-half-year deal with the club.

The France goalkeeper’s future has been the subject of discussion with his current deal having been due to expire at the end of the season and had been linked with a move to Roma which would have seen him re-unite with Jose Mourinho (Gazzetta Italia).

The 35-year-old has been free to talk to foreign clubs this month, with less than six months left on his previous deal.

The World Cup winner has now ended speculation that he could leave north London by putting pen to paper on fresh terms.  Having joined from Lyon in 2012, Lloris is already in his 10th season at the Premier League outfit.

Lloris is set to make his 396th appearance for Tottenham in all competitions on Sunday when they travel to Stamford Bridge to face rivals Chelsea in the Premier League (transfermarkt).

Spurs boss Antonio Conte revealed last month that he planned to sit down to discuss the goalkeeper’s future, insisting he considered the player to be an important part of his plans (Sky Sports).

While many fans are looking to the transfer window for new arrivals, the news that Hugo Lloris has committed his future to the club is equally as important.

He has shown since recovering from his elbow injury suffered in late 2019 that he is currently at the top of his game and arguably has been Spurs’ player of the season.
