If being a Tottenham fan teaches you anything, it’s to not get too attached to players.

There are almost three months left of the transfer window, which means Spurs are desperate for their main men to put pen to paper on new deals as soon as possible to banish speculation.

Mauricio Pochettino recently extended his contract until 2021, but it looks like goalkeeper Hugo Lloris isn’t going to make it that easy.

Lloris' snub

The Mirror report that Lloris has turned down an offer, with his current contract running until 2019.

The Frenchman played a key role in Spurs' success this season and had it not been for the 5-1 final day loss to Newcastle, they would have had the best defensive record in the league.

He has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the past and speculation could ensue as long as he appears reluctant to commit. 

Fans' surprising reaction 

But for those expecting a complete meltdown from Tottenham fans on social media were disappointed, as they were surprisingly composed:

It seems you have to get up pretty early to fool these Tottenham fans. After all, they've spent so many years watching their best players leave, they must have learned the real warning signs. So maybe this isn't one of them. 

Some supporters who seem particularly well-acquainted with the goings-on in the boardroom also sussed out pretty quickly the real reason he may have turned down the deal. 

And then there were those who didn't seem to care whether he left or not: 

Improved offer 

Of course, it is possible that Tottenham are yet to even put together a serious offer for Lloris because he has so long left to run on his current deal. It is yet to be seen whether any other clubs come in for him this summer. 

He is also away on international duty with France ahead of the Euros, so he may be waiting to return to England before beginning negotiations properly. 

Rest assured, though, chairman Daniel Levy will no doubt be back with an improved offer in the near future, as they really can't afford to lose the stopper if they are to mount another title challenge next season.
