Report: Tottenham 'confident' of keeping Hugo Lloris, player wants to stay

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly 'confident' of keeping hold of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris this summer.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are growing increasingly confident that star goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will stay at White Hart Lane.

The French shot stopper, 28, joined Spurs from Lyon back in the summer of 2012, and has established himself as one of the finest goalkeepers not only in the Premier League, but also in world football.

With over 100 appearances for Spurs, Lloris has been a consistent player under three different managers now, with Andre Villas-Boas, Tim Sherwood and Mauricio Pochettino all using him as a key player in their teams.

Yet with his outstanding performances at White Hart Lane, he's naturally been linked with a host of clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

It seemed that Lloris would be eager to play Champions League football again, and moves to PSG or Real Madrid would certainly have offered that - yet according to the Daily Mirror, that isn't the case.

They suggest that even if Tottenham miss out on a top four place and qualification to next season's Champions League, Lloris is keen to stay at White Hart Lane.

It's believed that Lloris is settled in North London with his family, and isn't interested in leaving this summer, preferring to stay with Tottenham for the long-haul.

If that's true, then it's a huge boost for Tottenham and manager Pochettino, who even secured a contingency plan in Michel Vorm last summer should Lloris leave - which doesn't appear to be on the cards anymore.
