Lloris inks a new contract extension with Tottenham until 2024, putting an end to speculation over his future.

The France international has spent ten years with the Premier League giants and will remain in north London.

Hugo Lloris has extended his contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2024.

The World Cup-winning France international goalkeeper has already spent a decade at Spurs, making over 400 appearances, and has decided to prolong his stay with the Premier League giants.

He is the club captain in north London and is certain to retain his starting position between the sticks as Antonio Conte brings in a new era for a squad anxious to end a lengthy wait for major honours.

“We are thrilled to announce that Hugo Lloris has signed a new two-and-a-half-year deal with the club, which will continue until 2024,” the club’s official website states.

“As a club and country captain, as well as a World Cup and UEFA Nations League winner with France, Hugo, 35, has made 395 appearances since joining Lyon in August 2012.

“Already 14th on our all-time appearance chart, he will shortly join a select group of players who have made 400 or more appearances for us in all competitions. Only two goalkeepers have made more appearances for us — all-time greats Pat Jennings (590) and Ted Ditchburn (452).”

Lloris’ decision to sign a contract extension with Spurs puts an end to any question about his future.

Conte, who took over as manager from Nuno Espirito Santo in November, was rumored to be willing to let the veteran go as a free agent.

The 35-year-old was connected with a return to Nice, where he began his professional career, but any such intentions have been put on hold for the time being.

Tottenham’s first player to maintain 100 Premier League clean sheets was linked with a summer departure when his previous contract expired.
