Tottenham latest news: Contract agreement with 136-cap ace would be 'good business'


Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge believes that Tottenham will soon address Hugo Lloris' contract situation.

The French World Cup winning captain has entered the final year of his deal in north London and Bridge thinks that it would be "good business" if the Tottenham hierarchy decide to extend his stay at the club.

How is Lloris performing this season?

Prior to Antonio Conte's arrival last month, very few Spurs player had been performing well this season. The same can't be said about the 34-year-old, though.

Despite sitting eighth in Tottenham's WhoScored rating list, Lloris has been up there with Spurs' most consistent players this season.

In Conte's reign alone, Lloris has made 10 saves in four games, six coming in one game against Leeds, whilst he also did well to keep out Teemu Pukki early on against Norwich on Sunday.

That save from the Finn allowed Lloris to record his sixth clean sheet of the season, bettered only by Edouard Mendy, Ederson and Alisson.

Hours after that game, The Athletic confirmed that Tottenham and Lloris are currently in talks over a new contract and Bridge is hopeful that the two parties can come to an agreement.



What did Bridge say about Lloris?

He told GIVEMESPORT: "There are noises that they will be looking at his contract.

"I've said before that his family love living in London, so that's a huge plus and I think it would be good business if Spurs were to extend his contract by a year or two."

Does Lloris deserve a new contract?

Lloris deserves a new contract based on his loyalty alone. This is his tenth season at Tottenham, and despite watching many players come and go during that period, he's never appeared keen on leaving.

In truth, Tottenham have stayed loyal to the 136-cap Frenchman, but he's more than repaid the faith shown in him by many managers and Daniel Levy, becoming one of the club's best servants in the Premier League era.

Furthermore, Conte has far more important issues to address in January and then next summer, so adding signing a goalkeeper to that list isn't necessary.

Therefore, keeping Lloris around would be a sensible decision by Tottenham.
