Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has warned his employers he could leave the club if they do not qualify for next season's Champions League.

The 27-year-old, who joined the north London outfit in August 2012 for £8million, is desperate to play in Europe's elite competition once again.

Lloris experienced playing in the Champions League during his time at Ligue 1 side Lyon but decided to leave the French club in order to ply his trade in the Premier League.

Tottenham last played in the Champions League in the 2010/11 campaign - two seasons before Lloris' arrival at White Hart Lane.

And Lloris has hinted he could leave the club if Tottenham fail to finish in the top four.

Speaking to Telefoot, Lloris said on the possibility of leaving Tottenham: “The objective is to reach the Champions League. After that, it's to close the gap on the biggest teams in the league.

“Without Champions League football? I've not thought about it. I must weigh things up at the end of the season."

Tottenham are currently fifth in the Premier League - level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool.

Lloris will be hoping his side can leapfrog Liverpool when his side take on Manchester City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.
