Hugo Lloris takes part in Spurs photo-shoot for away kit release

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

The Tottenham stopper suffered a broken wrist this week, but was still involved in the club's unveiling of their new away strip.

As weeks go, this wouldn't normally have been a great one for Tottenham and France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, even though it ended with photos of him modelling the new Spurs away strip as seen on the club website.

On his first day back in pre-season training on Monday, the 27-year-old was diagnosed with having received a broken wrist, calling into question any chance of him appearing in the Premier League opener with Manchester United on August 8.

United, of course, have been closely linked to the Frenchman this summer by the likes of the Independent, but as of yet, seem to be keeping hold of their own goalkeeper David De Gea, with Real Madrid re-signing Kiko Casilla from Espanyol.

Despite Lloris's injury setback, the former Lyon man, who is a favourite to captain the side next season if he remains at White Hart Lane, took part in much of the fitness and conditioning work the rest of Mauricio Pochettino's squad were put through, and showed no signs of anything but enjoying being back among his fellow Spurs players.

Lloris was involved as the club promoted their new away kit, which was released on Friday, modelling the goalkeepers' away colours alongside Netherlands international Michel Vorm.

It was a positive sign for Spurs supporters to see Lloris as such a part of the promotion of the kit, despite both the transfer rumours and his injury, and will keep them hopeful that the White Hart Lane favourite will be between the sticks come the close of the transfer window.
