Hugo Lloris hails beginning of a new process at Spurs.

France international Hugo Lloris expressed his joy at putting pen to paper on a two-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur.


The Spurs captain’s new deal will see him remain with the north London club until 2024.


The World Cup winner moved to Spurs from Lyon back in 2012 and has made 318 Premier League appearances, registering 112 clean sheets with the Lilywhites.

“I feel really happy, obviously for me, but also for my family, to extend my stay in London and at Spurs for the next two years,” Hugo told the club’s official website.


“I feel it’s a privilege to play football and to play for such a big club like Spurs. Also, the relationship with the fans is important for me. In the last few months, I’ve felt their support even more than before. So, the decision was really easy to take for me.


“I’m really happy to be in this situation and to be focussed now on the next months and years, to continue our work and to continue the development of our team. I believe we are in a new process under Antonio Conte, with strong team basics to give us a foundation and a structure. Then, it’s up to the players to show their quality. Step by step, we’ll then see improvement.


“My wish is to become even more competitive and to close the gap with the best teams in England, and why not get back into the Champions League? This season, this is my personal target, to help the team and the Club to continue in that way, and to enjoy football.


“Now, it’s the beginning of a new process, and hopefully, with the help of Antonio and his staff, with his experience, with his energy, with his discipline, we’re going to make something important for the Club.”


Tottenham boss Antonio Conte added: "It’s important our captain signed for two years. It means the club and the whole environment trust you.


“He is one of the most important keepers in the world. Captain of France and Tottenham.”
