Hugo Lloris has admitted he would be open to leaving Tottenham in January having only joined the club in August, admitting that ‘everything is possible’ during a transfer window.

The French goalkeeper has been forced to play second fiddle to veteran shot-stopper Brad Friedel in the Premier League this season, and has had to rely on appearances in the Europa League and cup competitions.

Lloris has made just one league appearance since his £12 million switch from Lyon and has previously voiced his frustrations at the lack of game time at White Hart Lane, while France boss Didier Deschamps has been even more vocal in his criticism of the situation, and has engaged in a war of words with Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.

The 25-year-old insists he is happy with the way he has been received by Tottenham’s fans and his team-mates, but wants his situation to change as soon as possible.

"I feel much at ease at the club, where I have been very, very well received by the players, the fans and people at the club," Lloris told L'Équipe.

"Now you have to ask all those questions (over the No.1 spot) to the coach.

"As I already said, I feel much at ease at the club. Then again, everything is possible."

Lloris will likely be on the bench for his first taste of the north London derby this weekend, when Tottenham take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
