Hugo Lloris has stated that signing a new contract at Tottenham shows how much he believes in the project they are building at the club.
The club announced on its official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon that the 29-year-old goalkeeper has signed a new contract at the club which will run until 2022.
He joins the likes of striker Harry Kane, who also put pen-to-paper on a new deal earlier this month.
Lloris joined the north London club during the summer of 2012, when he moved from Ligue 1 giants Lyon for a fee of £7.8 million.
The France international has since gone on to establish himself as a valuable first-team player as he expressed his delight at extending his stay at the club.
“I’m very pleased with this new contract,” Lloris told Spurs TV “That’s the way I show my commitment to the club, to my teammates and the gaffer and to show again how much I believe in this project and hopefully the best year is ahead.”
Lloris played a pivotal role as Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished in a Champions League place last season.
The shot stopper played 37 Premier League games, helping his team to a third-placed finish by conceding a club-record low of 35 goals.
These performances have resulted in Lloris being regarded as one of the best keepers in England’s top-flight.
Additionally, he has played 21 Premier League and Champions League games this term, helping his side keep eight clean sheets.
During his time in north London over the past four years, the Frenchman has made 189 appearances, keeping 65 clean sheets along the way.
Lloris will be now concentrating on helping Pochettino’s side claim a top four finish ahead of a busy festive period as they are currently one point off a Champions League spot.
