Hugo Lloris signs new Tottenham contract: France goalkeeper puts an end to exit talk after agreeing new five-year contract
Lloris has been linked with a move away from Spurs in order to play Champions league football, but the Premier League club have confirmed that he's signed a new deal
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.
“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).
