Hugo Lloris is set to stay at Tottenham after holding talks over his future with chairman Daniel Levy, according to Football Insider.

The Spurs captain has started every Premier League game so far this season and even played in the latter stages of cup competitions, with deputy Joe Hart failing to impress in a handful of appearances.

Tottenham have been somewhat reliant on Lloris this term and would do well to bring in better back-up than Hart this summer – though there has been talk they may even require a new first-choice goalkeeper.

Last month we relayed word from the London Evening Standard suggesting Spurs are lining up West Brom’s Sam Johnstone as a replacement for Lloris, who could be PSG-bound.

But now, Football Insider is claiming Lloris will remain in north London beyond the summer after positive talks with Levy.

Ahead of what could be another transitional season for Tottenham, it makes sense to keep the captain around the place for a bit of leadership.

But as we’ve mentioned before, Spurs should be looking for a long-term replacement for Lloris, who turns 35 later this year.
