Published Add your comment

Nice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has confirmed he will play for French champions Lyon next season.

The highly-rated 21-year-old is believed to have turned down offers from AC Milan and Tottenham, and will join Les Gones in the next few days for a fee thought to be in the region of 10million euros.

"It is going to give me a great chance to develop and step up a level," Lloris told a specially convened press conference on Thursday.
