Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the club.
The 35-year-old, who was out of contract this summer, is now tied to the club until 2024, meaning he will go over the ten-year mark at the club having joined from Lyon in 2012.

Here to Stay
Lloris has been almost ever-present in the Spurs team since his arrival ten years ago.
In that time he has moved up to 14th in the club’s all-time appearance list and will soon become just the 12th player to make more than 400 appearances for Spurs.
He has also been one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier League, becoming the first to keep 100 clean sheets for Spurs in the top flight – one of only 16 goalkeepers to do so.
Since 2014 Lloris has also captained the side, leaving them out in three cup finals, the crown of which will no doubt be the 2019 Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid.
Despite being 35-years-old, Lloris is still one of the best goalkeepers in the league and is a vitally important player for Spurs.
Of course, Spurs will have to start thinking about the future of the position soon, but while Lloris is still a top-quality goalkeeper, they should keep him in the number one position.
Antonio Conte Expected Lloris to Remain
Speaking to the media earlier this month, Spurs boss Antonio Conte remained positive that Lloris would continue his career at Spurs.
He said: “He’s our captain, he is a top goalkeeper for us, he has great experience,” he said.
“He knows very well Tottenham. He loves this shirt and this badge. For me he is an important player and I’m sure that they are going to find a solution for him to continue to play with Tottenham.”
