Tottenham contract news: Daniel Levy tipped to keep 'good servant' at Spurs

Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge doesn't think Tottenham should be in any rush to sell Hugo Lloris.

The Frenchman was described by Bridge as a "great servant" to Spurs, but the 34-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and could therefore leave on a free next summer.

But Pierluigi Gollini, who might be seen as a potential long-term replacement for Lloris, hasn't exactly caught the eye during his loan spell from Atalanta and Bridge has hinted that Tottenham should extend his contract.

What's the latest news with Lloris?

He has a point, Lloris has done brilliantly since joining from Lyon more than nine years ago.

Lloris, who said in an interview back in 2016 that he's got a good relationship with Daniel Levy, has remained loyal to the club during some extremely difficult times over the previous decade.

Even this season, whilst the majority of the Tottenham squad have generally been below-par, the experienced shot-stopper has continued to perform at a consistent level and even against Man United on Saturday, he did all he could to prevent yet another 3-0 defeat.

Lloris is due a testimonial next year, but he's now into the final year of his contract and as of now, there's no signs that he's going to pen another deal.

However, there has equally been nothing to suggest that this will be Lloris' tenth and final season as a Tottenham player.

With that in mind, Bridge has urged the club to have a rethink and not make such a rash decision in regard to his future.

What did Bridge say?

He told GIVEMESPORT: "I think he's been a good servant for Tottenham, and I certainly wouldn't be rushing to get rid of him. I hope Lloris stays for another couple of seasons, one more at least."

Is Lloris likely to stay past this season?

As mentioned above, Lloris has made his fair share of mistakes, but which goalkeeper hasn't?

Even Allison Becker, who's regarded as one of the best on the planet, endured a dreadful run of form during last season, making countless errors.

Furthermore, since returning from a dislocated elbow just before COVID-19 struck last year, the Spurs captain has been playing some of the best football of his career and has certainly cut out some of the mistakes that he was previously making.

Lloris will be 35 by next season, but Tottenham would be foolish to not even consider offering him a new deal.
