Alasdair Gold: Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris set to sign contract extension

According to Alasdair Gold, the club’s correspondent for Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris is expected to sign a contract extension “very soon”. This piece of news would be a huge boost for Antonio Conte as the goalkeeper has continued to perform at a top-level this season.

Lloris would become a free agent next summer, and he could agree to a pre-contract with foreign clubs this month. However, an extension appears to be in the works as Conte and Lloris are both keen to see the latter pen fresh terms.

The Frenchman has made “modest” demands regarding the terms involved in the new deal. Tottenham are happy with the request and an agreement is expected to be signed soon. As things stand, negotiations have already started regarding an extension.

Some Good News!

Looking at our transfer market dealings so far and considering how we lost one of our brightest prospects in the form of Dilan Markanday, the news regarding Lloris is a welcome relief. Then again, the club should not have left this too late, which adds to the issues that exist behind the scenes at the Lane.

The 35-year-old has featured in 18 Premier League matches this season, earning eight clean sheets in the process. That return is reasonably good, looking at the defensive woes we have faced this season. He has continued to perform admirably even under Conte who took over from Nuno Espirito Santo midway through the season.

Mere stats would not appreciate what the France international brings to our team. A consistent performer for the last 10 years, Lloris is surely one of the finest players to don the Tottenham jersey in the Premier League era.

More Tottenham Hotspur

The Tottenham veteran has admittedly shown any signs of decline, but he continues to showcase his abilities as a top-level shot-stopper. In fact, he has gotten rid of the occasional mistakes and has developed into a top keeper for both club and country.

We have not yet found any reliable backup for the Spurs star, so that gives us another reason to extend his contract. It will give us more time to search for a replacement while at the same time ensuring we have a reliable presence in goal.

At the same time, a one-year extension would be wise on our part since long contracts to players nearing the end of their playing careers is not ideal.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
