Tottenham have confirmed that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has signed a new five-year contract that will run until 2019.
Lloris, who led France at the World Cup in Brazil, has been linked with a move away from Spurs in order to meet his desire to play Champions League football, but the highly-rated stopper has but an end to talk of a summer exit by extending his deal.
In a statement posted on the club's website, the club said: "We are delighted to announce that Hugo Lloris has committed his future to the Club with the signing of a new five-year contract."
Lloris admitted that he had spoken with both chairman Daniel Levy and new manager Mauricio Pochettino - who replaced Tim Sherwood in the summer - before committing his future to the club.

1/20 Aston Villa
Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini of Arsenal launch the new Puma Arsenal kits at the Puma Store on Carnaby Street. The yellow shirt will be for away matches and the blue shirt for away cup matches
2/20 Aston Villa (Home)
A number of clubs have opted for the thin stripe design on this season's shirt, and Aston Villa appear to have followed suit.
3/20 Burnley (Home)
Burnley's claret and blue shirt, sponsored by Puma, is a decent viewing on their return to the Premier League.
4/20 Chelsea (Home)
After Chelsea's famous paint campaign last season, Oscar models the simple, horizontal stripe design for the royal blue home kit. A solid effort from Adidas, but a pricey one at £55 for a short-sleeved shirt.
5/20 Chelsea (Away)
Reminiscent of their famous 1998 shirt - and the infamous 2008 one which they played in under Luiz Felipe Scolari - Chelsea have chosen the Brazilian style design for their away shirt.
6/20 Crystal Palace (Home & Away)
Is it Barcelona or more Steaua Bucharest? Either way, Crystal Palace's new home shirt is a simple and smart piece of innovation from manufacturers Macron. Their away kit, however, looks suspiciously like Napoli's - whose kit is also made by Macron - away shirt from 2013/14.
7/20 Everton (Home)
Everton players James McCarthy, Tim Howard and Leighton Baines model the 2014/15 shirt, which marks the comeback of Umbro into the Premier League.
8/20 Leicester City (Home)
Leicester City's return to the Premier League has been marked with this rather smart effort by Puma. Carrying a similar template to Italy's shirts can never go wrong.
Leicester City Football Club
9/20 Liverpool (Home)
Warrior's latest crack at the Liverpool home shirt is an impressive one indeed, marking a return to the red and white colourway as opposed to red and gold in 2013/14.
10/20 Liverpool (Away)
Their attempt at designing a decent away shirt, however, continues to falter with this ultra-bright yellow and red mix.
11/20 Liverpool (Third Kit)
Liverpool's questionable choice for a sache and hoop combo has come under-fire from fans.
12/20 Manchester City (home)
The Premier League champions have unveiled their updated Nike shirt, with a black v-neck collar replacing the previous blue and white trim on the crew neck.
Manchester City FC
13/20 Manchester United (Home)
Featuring new sponsors Chevrolet, the large logo has attracted a mixed response from Red Devils fans.
14/20 Manchester United (Away)
Wayne Rooney in the new Manchester United away kit
15/20 Newcastle United (Away)
A silky silver shirt replaces the plain black version from 2013/14, and seems to suit the rather bright Wonga sponsor a lot better.
16/20 QPR (Home, Away & Third Kit)
Perhaps one of the best looking shirts so far, QPR's horizontal hoop home shirt is a joy to behold. The decision to have an all-white away shirt is quite baffling, however, given that white is also included in the home, and the third kit is somewhat Sunday League-ish.

“I spoke with the Chairman and I know the Club is as ambitious as ever,” Lloris added. “It’s very important to feel at home at a club and for my family to feel well. I enjoy a great relationship with the Club and the fans. The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino is important as well. I have a good feeling with him. He is also ambitious.

"Everything is clear in my head and if I’ve signed a new contract it’s because I trust the Club and I’m sure we will progress in a positive way.
“Last season wasn’t the season we all hoped for but we were still able to finish sixth in the league. We know where we have to improve, the Club also knows and there is a feeling and a confident connection between the Club and the players.”
Lloris has made 78 appearances for Tottenham since he arrived at White Hart Lane from Lyon in 2012, joining for 10million euros, potentially rising to 15m dependent on his performance and success (£8m rising to £12m).
