Ex-striker hails Levy's influence as Lloris set to snub Pochettino and stay at Tottenham
Keeping hold of Hugo Lloris is a good move from Tottenham as plenty of players could leave the club this summer.
That’s according to former West Ham hitman Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Lloris’ future.
Football Insider understands Lloris is planning to remain at Spurs for at least another year after recent talks with chairman Daniel Levy.
Football Insider revealed earlier in January that PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is in “regular contact” with the goalkeeper and would love to sign him this summer.
On Monday, Sky Sports revealed that Harry Kane wants to leave Spurs before the Euros with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea all registering their interest.

When asked if keeping Lloris was a good move by Spurs, McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild, “I would think so.
“34 is nothing for a good goalkeeper. They need to keep hold of their good players.
“They have a wonderful new stadium and lots of good players but they might all leave. We’ve seen what is happening with Kane.
“They could lose a lot of big assets this summer so keeping someone like Lloris around is a good move. Levy has actually done well there.”
Lloris has been at Spurs since 2012 and has made 372 total appearances for the club.
He has played every minute of Tottenham’s Premier League season.
