Tottenham Hotspur have managed to tie down many of their first-team stars to lengthly contracts this season.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino responded to questions regarding Hugo Lloris' contract situation at the club, following their announcement that they have tied down Harry Kane to a new six-year deal, as quoted by the Evening Standard.

The 29-year-old France international is an integral part of the Tottenham first-team, and convincing him to commit his future to the club will surely be a priority for Spurs, now that they have wrapped up Kane's long-term future.

And Pochettino spoke to reporters in response to a question regarding the future of Lloris, as quoted by the Evening Standard:

"Maybe in the next few days there will be more contract news – but not about Hugo. He is very ambitious but I can only tell you he is very happy, he wants success here and to stay here. That is his ambition.”

The Lilywhites have the joint best defensive record in the league, down in no small part to the outstanding performances of their goalkeeper.

Tottenham's wage structure is famously stringent, and one would imagine that Daniel Levy will have to slightly alter that structure, should they hope to keep the France international at White Hart Lane for an extended period of time. 

Despite their poor run of form, there is certainly a lot to be excited about if you're a Spurs fan, with so many of the first-team showing their loyalty to the club by committing their futures' to Tottenham.
