This Tottenham player will earn £20k a week more than Harry Kane - report
By Emma Sanders
Hugo Lloris will be earning £20,000 more a week than Tottenham sensation Harry Kane, according to a report.
Kane’s current salary is said to be £100,000 a week but Lloris has reportedly become the club’s highest-paid player after signing a new deal on Thursday afternoon.
An article by the Daily Star has listed the wages of Lloris’ Tottenham teammates and he stands above the rest on earnings.
The keeper became the latest in a long list of Tottenham players who have signed new deals with the club in 2016 and Kane was among the biggest stars to commit their futures at White Hart Lane.
Lloris’ new deal will extend his stay at Tottenham for six years and the skipper has silenced speculation linking him with a number of top European clubs in January.

Kane has been one of the club’s best players since breaking into the first team in 2014 and was last season’s Premier League top goal-scorer, taking home the Golden Boot award.
He has been equally impressive this season despite being absent for two months between September and November but returned to score his side’s only goal in the 1-1 draw against Arsenal.
The striker has scored nine goals in 15 appearances in the Premier League and the Champions League this season and has been a constant threat up front.
As well as Kane, a number of top players such as Christian Eriksen (£75k), Dele Alli (£50k), Jan Vertonghen (£100k) and Toby Alderweireld (£75k) will all be earning less than Lloris.
It’s no surprise the keeper has been offered such a lucrative deal given his status as one of the best keepers in the world and the skipper will no doubt continue to be a huge asset to Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
In other Tottenham news, fans react on Twitter to speculation Alderweireld could be the next player to sign a new deal.
