Hugo Lloris has responded to speculation that he will leave Tottenham for Arsenal in the summer by laughing Olivier Giroud's proposition, according to the Spurs website.

"Yes I heard about that," laughed the Frenchman.

"It is embarrassing. I don't think that, I'm very focused on Spurs' ambition and I am very pleased to play for Spurs."

"I have too much respect for the club and the Spurs fans to think that kind of thing. Of course I know him very well because we are teammates in the national team - the same with Laurent Koscielny - but I am a Spurs player and I'm very proud to play here."

This season the French 'keeper has been outstanding for his side, and his latest stunning performance was against Everton last Sunday, where he was voted man of the match by his own fans.

Manager Tim Sherwood hailed the Spurs' keeper's performance by insisting that: "A save like that is just as good as a goal. He’s a world-class goalkeeper.”

Lloris who has 10 clean sheets in 25 games so far this season is enjoying his football at White Hart Lane, and will likely be setting his sights on qualification for Champions League football next year.

The north London club acquired the France international goalkeeper in the 2012 summer transfer windows deadline day for a move of £12million from Lyon.
