Tottenham have confirmed Hugo Lloris has “progressed to field work” in his rehabilitation from a thigh injury.

The goalkeeper hasn’t played since suffering the injury in Spurs’ 3-0 win at Manchester United in the Premier League last month.

It has been a hectic few months for Lloris. After captaining France to World Cup glory in Russia over the summer, the Tottenham captain was arrested for drink-driving back in London.

He received a fine and a driving ban, as well as an additional fine from Spurs, but the Frenchman retained the club captaincy.

Michel Vorm filled in for Lloris in the defeats to Watford, Liverpool and Inter Milan, but the Dutchman injured his knee prior to Saturday’s win at Brighton.

Both goalkeepers are out of contention for the EFL Cup clash with Watford on Wednesday so Paulo Gazzaniga, who impressed against Brighton, will retain his place between the sticks.

Hopefully Lloris will be fit enough to play against Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Saturday, although Gazzaniga’s performances at the weekend has settled some nerves among the fans.
