Tottenham are likely to offer Hugo Lloris a new contract soon, according to reports.

Last month we relayed praise from many Spurs fans after Lloris finished the season strongly. The Frenchman was labelled “underrated” and “the true player of the season” following an impressive string of displays from the Premier League’s restart to the end of the campaign.

And now it looks like the Londoners will reward Lloris with an extension to his current deal, which ends in the summer of 2022.

ESPN and the very reliable Fabrizio Romano both claim talks over a new contract are set to take place between Spurs and Lloris, with the club set to bolster its goalkeeping set-up further with the arrival of free agent Joe Hart.

Hart will join Paulo Gazzaniga as back-up for Lloris following the departure of Michel Vorm – the Dutchman’s contract expired last month.

Tottenham would be wise to be looking for a long-term replacement for Lloris, who turns 34 later this year. But for now, tying down the captain is a logical bit of business.

  1. Hugo was absolutely outstanding after the restart. In fact I can’t remember a single error. He was commanding, made outstanding saves and showed leadership qualities that some fans didn’t realise he had. (You don’t have to be loud and demonstrative to be a great captain. See King, Ledley.) I wouldn’t swap him for any keeper in the PL. Urgently needs a 4 or 5 year contract.

  2. Yes. Used to dread whenever we conceit a penalty as he never save any in the past. But pleasantly surprised to see him saving a few this season! Not to mention many excellent saves in normal play.
