Hugo Lloris will not be leaving Tottenham this summer, says Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The France goalkeeper has been linked with a move to Manchester United and rivals Arsenal.

The Spurs captain has been reported as United's main target to replace David De Gea should the Spaniard join Real Madrid this summer.

Pochettino, however, says that Lloris is "happy" at Tottenham, and will is not seeking a move away from White Hart Lane. The 28-year-old made 35 league appearances for the north Londoners last season, as they finished fifth in the Premier League.

"There have been a lot of rumours, but Hugo wants to stay with us and we are happy with him too," Pochettino said.

"He is happy and everything else is just rumour."

Lloris signed for Tottenham from Lyon for £10m in August 2012.

Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere has apologised to anyone who was offended or upset by the anti-Tottenham chants that included swearing which he led during Arsenal's FA Cup victory parade.

The Arsenal midfielder took the microphone during Sunday's celebrations to mock fierce rivals Spurs as the players celebrated on a stage outside the Emirates Stadium following an open-top bus parade.

 

Some of the chanting, in front of a crowd that included many young children, included swearing.

"Apologies if I upset or offended any of u with my celebrations," he wrote.

It's understood that the club will take no action against him for his antics.
