Tottenham have announced that club captain Hugo Lloris has signed a new two-and-a-half year deal.

The France skipper's contract was expiring in the summer and Spurs had been keen to tie Lloris down to a fresh deal.

And the club announced on Friday morning that the goalkeeper has put pen to paper on a new contract in north London.

"It's a privilege to play for such a big club. I decided to continue the story," Lloris told Spurs' social channels.

Lloris signed for Tottenham on transfer deadline day in August 2012, joining on £13m deal from Lyon.

Though he initially struggled to break into the starting lineup under Andre Vilas-Boas, Lloris ended his maiden campaign in England with 33 appearances in all competitions, establishing himself as one of the Premier League's finest goalkeepers.

After Younes Kaboul was stripped of the armband, Lloris was appointed Tottenham captain midway through the 2014/15 season and was hailed by then-boss Mauricio Pochettino as another member of his coaching staff.

Despite a dip in form around five years into his time at Spurs, Lloris has since returned to his very best and remains one of the finest stoppers in European football.

By the end of his new contract, Lloris will be due a testimonial at Tottenham having currently spent nine years at the club. He's also reached a number of milestones at Spurs, becoming their first player to reach 300 Premier League appearances, while only Harry Kane has featured more often than Lloris in European competitions.

At international level, Lloris captained France to World Cup glory in 2018.
