Hugo Lloris considered joining Roma in the summer but now looks set to sign a new contract with Tottenham, according to The Athletic.

The club captain is out of contract at the end of the season, leading to speculation about his future.

In January, Lloris will be able to speak to foreign clubs about a free transfer next summer – the winter transfer window will be Spurs’ last opportunity to sell him for a fee.

However, The Athletic believes talks have now been opened over a new deal for the Frenchman, who apparently could have left before this season began.

The report says Lloris considered an exit and possibly had the opportunity to re-unite with Jose Mourinho at Roma, but he opted to stay put.

It is believed the 34-year-old wants to play for his hometown club Nice before he retires, though for now it seems he wants to continue being a Tottenham player.

All of which is good news for Spurs, who would struggle to find an affordable replacement for Lloris in the near future.



  1. Affordable replacement? It might take 10 or 20 years to find another keeper as good as hugo. Hes been an incredible servant to the club, an absolutely elite keeper, in the top 5 or 10 in world football consistently for the last nearly 10 years.

    Goalkeepers are often remembered for their mistakes, but hugo makes very few and keeps us in so many games where we would be thumped with a lesser keeper.

    There are few keepers, professionals or even people in football in the mould of hugo these days and we wont find another like him for a long time.

    I just hope Conte and Paratici can deliver the players spurs need to give us a chance of silverware in the coming years.

    Its over 3 years since we lost dembele to injury before being sold (not replaced), its nearly 3 years since we lost eriksen (not replaced) and its over 2 years since mourinho froze super jan out (not replaced). Even looking past the reality that we missed out on silverware in our best era because we had no squad depth, we simply dont have a top starting 11 until we address major squad deficiencies.
