Hugo Lloris has declared his intention to commit his long-term future to Tottenham in a major boost for the club.
Reports emerged earlier this week that the Spurs captain had rebuffed the club’s initial attempts to tie him to a new agreement.
Football Insider revealed on Friday that the north Londoners are ready to offer Lloris a stunning £26million contract in a bid to secure one of their senior players to a long-term deal.
This is equivalent to £100,000-a-week and would run until 2021 if, as expected, an agreement can be reached this summer.
The 29-year-old France international has three years remaining on his current £80,000-a-week deal, which he signed in July 2014.
Speaking in France ahead of Euro 2016, Lloris is clearly comfortable with manager Mauricio Pochettino and his backroom staff.
“I have faith in Mauricio Pochettino and with Toni Jimenez, the goalkeeping coach,” said Lloris, as quoted by the Mirror. “The club is in a very good dynamic, the young players are in the England team and we are building something strong.
“It is very positive. I don’t even think about leaving. For me, the adventure is on course.”
Lloris, whose current deal expires in 2019, has established himself as one of the best keepers in the world since joining Tottenham from Lyon in 2012.
He was an integral figure in the team that defied expectations to finish third in the Premier League this season and will captain host nation France at Euro 2016.
Football Insider revealed earlier this month that Spurs want to tie up to 10 senior stars, including Lloris, down to improved contracts this summer in order to keep the Premier League’s youngest squad together.
