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.

 

“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.

"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).
