Hugo Lloris has revealed that he is not currently thinking about signing a new Tottenham deal.
The Spurs captain has been in phenomenal form this season and pulled off some great saves in the 0-0 draw against Bournemouth in the Premier League.
Lloris, 29, is currently tied to White Hart Lane until 2019 when his existing deal expires.
The Frenchman has been a crucial figure at Spurs since arriving from Lyon in 2012 and Spurs team-mate Jan Vertonghen recently urged the club to extend his contract.
Lloris has explained that he is more concerned with the immediate future and insists there is “no rush” to agree a new deal.
“I am just thinking about the near future, the next game,” Lloris said, as quoted by the Evening Standard. I feel very happy to be a Tottenham player today, to be the skipper. There is no rush to think about that.”
Lloris has made 178 appearances for Spurs in all competitions and kept an impressive 63 clean sheets.
Spurs currently boast the best defensive record in the league, conceding just four goal from their opening nine games.
Lloris has played in seven of those games and missed a couple of league matches through injury, but his understudy Michel Vorm provided a strong back-up.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are interested in a 20-year-old international who is also being pursued by European giants.
