Spurs fans were understandably happy that Lloris has committed his immediate future to Tottenham.
Lloris cited the ambition of the club and new Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino as one of the reasons he committed his future to the club, despite speculation during last season that clubs in the Champions League were interested in securing his services.
But the French number one seems to be happy in North London, and evidently feels he can achieve his ambitions at Spurs.
Tottenham fans reacted on twitter to the news, and seemed very happy to have secured the future of the 27-year-old, who is amongst the highest rated goalkeepers in the Premier League. Though there is a degree of scepticism over if he will see out his contract if Tottenham don't make it into the Champions League next season.
Here is what a few of twitter users had to say:
Best news of the transfer window so far! Hugo Lloris signs a 5 YEAR DEAL! Get in! @SpursOfficial— Charlie Poole (@charlie_poole) July 10, 2014
Hopefully Hugo Lloris demanded a clause which says Kyle Naughton & Danny Rose will not be in the same XI— Ricky Teague (@NoHoltbyNoParty) July 10, 2014
Hugo Lloris has signed new 5yr contract... great news! Give him captaincy now for the upcoming season. #THFC— Codie_thfc (@Codie_thfc) July 10, 2014
Hugo Lloris signs a new contract. Best keeper in the league for me, makes some mistakes but aside from Cech, head and shoulders above most.— James Harbour (@PremHunter) July 10, 2014
Hugo Lloris doing the ol' '5 year contract, trust the club's vision' routine. Will definitely leave if we don't get top 4 this season #THFC— Danny Watkins (@dannywatty) July 10, 2014
