Spurs star signs new long-term contract.Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed via their official website that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
The French international, who was first choice for his country at the 2014 World Cup finals this summer, has become regarded as one of the finest goalkeepers in the Premier League since he moved to Tottenham from Lyon two years ago, and his decision to extend his stay at the club will be a welcome boost.
We are delighted to announce that Hugo Lloris has committed his future to the Club with the signing of a new five-year contract.

The 27-year-old had been linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in recent times after his starring displays, but now looks set to remain at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future.
Lloris is quoted as saying that he feels at home with Spurs and enjoys a good relationship with the fans, saying: “I spoke with the Chairman and I know the Club is as ambitious as ever.
“It’s very important to feel at home at a club and for my family to feel well. I enjoy a great relationship with the Club and the fans. The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino is important as well. I have a good feeling with him. He is also ambitious.
“Everything is clear in my head and if I’ve signed a new contract it’s because I trust the Club and I’m sure we will progress in a positive way.”
With this good news for new manager Pochettino, the Argentine coach will now be hoping to make the necessary signings to help strengthen the squad he has inherited from previous manager Tim Sherwood.
