Hugo Lloris

All the morning news, views and transfer rumours from White Hart Lane...

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has calmed down speculation over his future, stating that he expects to remain at the club next season.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane this summer, and following France’s exit from the 2014 World Cup finals, he was quoted as saying that he is unsure about his future.

However, the former Lyon star, who joined Spurs in the summer of 2012, has now said that he will remain at Tottenham.

‘Yes, I should be [at Spurs next season]’, FourFourTwo quotes him as saying. ‘[But] I don’t want to speak about my situation now... I think I will speak soon about that and we will deal with it’.

Meanwhile, Wales international defender Ben Davies has been backed to shine at Tottenham, if he joins the London club from Swansea City this summer.

The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Spurs, with the two clubs believed to have already started negotiations over his transfer.

Davies’ current Swansea teammate Ashley Williams has now backed the young left-back to succeed at Tottenham, if he eventually joins them.

‘Tottenham are a big club, they are not a small team, and if he wants that then brilliant, and I would back him all the way’, the South Wales Evening Post quotes the 29-year-old centre-back as saying.

‘He would fit in well there without doubt. He has had two great years and sometimes you take his performances for granted.

‘I could not imagine performing like that when I was playing at his age. He has his feet on the ground and the way he has handled everything has been amazing’.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen has backed the Netherlands to get the better of Argentina in the semi-finals of the World Cup.

Vertonghen was part of the Belgium team that suffered a 1-0 defeat to the South American giants in the quarter-finals on Saturday.

‘I think Argentina will crash out of the tournament against Netherlands in the semi-finals. I really think so’, the 27-year-old told Goal.com.

‘Netherlands are very strong and play some good football. They are always calm on the ball and have the quality to eliminate Argentina’.
