The good news that all Spurs supporters have wanted to hear – Hugo Lloris has signed a new Tottenham contract to remain at White Hart Lane.
Following a disappointing season for Tottenham last year there had been uncertainty over the future of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who, along with Christian Eriksen was one of the few bright lights at Spurs last season.
After returning from the World Cup in Brazil where he led France to the quarter-finals, Lloris has signed a new contact with Tottenham. Commenting on his decision, to the club website, Lloris said,
Everything is clear in my head and if I’ve signed a new contract it’s because I trust the Club.
Lloris said that he is happy at Tottenham and feels an important part of the club,
It’s very important to feel at home at club and for my family to feel well. I enjoy great relationship with Club and fans.
He has signed a new 5-year contract with Tottenham after speaking to the Chairman, Daniel Levy and is satisfied that the club have ambitions for the future.
I spoke with the Chairman and I know the Club is as ambitious as ever.
Lloris spoke of the importance of the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as manager and hie plans for the team, saying,
The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino is important as well. I have a good feeling with him. He is also ambitious.
Hugo Lloris signed for Tottenham in 2012 from Lyon and has been an outstanding and consistent player for Spurs in the past two seasons. Persuading Lloris to sign a new contract is an important step by Tottenham this summer as they faced the possibility of clubs across Europe making an approach to sign their goalkeeper who was one of the best at the World Cup.
Reflecting on the disappointment of last season, Lloris said,
Last season wasn’t the season we all hoped for but we were still able to finish sixth in the league. We know where we have to improve, the Club also knows and there is a feeling and a confident connection between the Club and the players.
There has been much speculation in the past few days linking Tottenham will new players but this agreement with Lloris over a new contract will be one of the club’s most important signings of the summer.
