Lloris tipped for Tottenham summer exit after new Pochettino reveal
Noel Whelan has tipped Hugo Lloris to leave Tottenham this summer after another error-ridden performance against Manchester City.
The former Leeds forward, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed that he can’t see any outcome other than Lloris leaving in the summer.
Lloris has made several high profile mistakes in recent weeks as his side have been knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton in a 5-4 loss and he was at fault for two of Manchester City’s goals in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat.
The France international got a hand to Rodri’s penalty but couldn’t keep it out and he was later beaten at his near post by a tame Ilkay Gundogan shot.
Whelan doesn’t see a future at Spurs for Lloris as he claimed a summer move is ‘on the cards’.

“I feel that at times, some players can be at a club for too long, sometimes you need that change,” he told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.
“I think him leaving at the end of the season is on the cards, I can’t see anything else.
“I think he wants that move. It’s best for the club as well, he’s been there a long time and been a great servant as club captain.
“We’ve seen a lot of mistakes from him over the past two seasons, uncharacteristic ones as well.
“He’ll be away at the end of the season. There’ll be a change in the goalkeeping department but there aren’t many good ones out there.
“When he makes mistakes like that it makes your mind up for you.”
The loss against City leaves Spurs with only one win in their last five as they sit ninth in the Premier League table.
