Tottenham Hotspur have announced that goalkeeper and club captain Hugo Lloris has committed his future to the club, signing a two-and-a-half year deal. 

The Frenchman, who will surpass a decade-long spell at the club this summer, will now remain with Spurs until at least the summer of 2024.

Lloris has been an integral part of the Lilywhites’ squad under several managers over the past ten years, having been the club’s first choice ‘keeper for the vast majority of his time there.

The France international, who also captains his country, has now amassed 395 appearances for the club across all competitions, keeping 134 clean sheets in that time.

Lloris is closing in on 400 Spurs appearances

The 35-year-old arrived in North London in August 2012, having agreed an £11.34 million move from French side Lyon.

During his time in England, he has stood out as one of the Premier League’s best ‘keepers of the past decade, and will arguably go down in history as one of Tottenham’s best in his position.

Spurs announced the news on Twitter, noting that Loris is already the club’s 14th-highest appearance maker, while there are only two goalkeepers who have played more times for the club than the Frenchman.

Lloris will also soon become only the 12th player to surpass the 400 appearance mark for the club.
