Hugo Lloris signs new Spurs contract

FC's Craig Burley breaks down Tottenham's hiring of former Southampton manager, Mauricio Pochettino, and the tough task ahead of him.

Hugo Lloris has signed a new five-year contract with Tottenham.

Lloris, 27, joined the Premier League club from Lyon in 2012, replacing Brad Friedel as the club's first-choice goalkeeper.

After committing himself to the club Lloris spoke of his hope that Tottenham can continue to develop and backed new manager Mauricio Pochettino, saying he had "a good feeling" about his appointment.

He told the club's official website: "I spoke with the chairman and I know the club is as ambitious as ever.

"It's very important to feel at home at a club and for my family to feel well. I enjoy a great relationship with the club and the fans. The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino is important as well. I have a good feeling with him. He is also ambitious.

"Everything is clear in my head and if I've signed a new contract it's because I trust the club and I'm sure we will progress in a positive way.

"Last season wasn't the season we all hoped for but we were still able to finish sixth in the league. We know where we have to improve, the club also knows and there is a feeling and a confident connection between the club and the players."

Hugo Lloris' new contract will keep him at Tottenham until 2019.

The France international hinted that he would be likely to stay at Spurs following Les Bleus' World Cup exit, having been linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.

"Yes, I should be [at Spurs next season]," Lloris is quoted by the London Evening Standard as having told reporters.

"[But] I don't want to speak about my situation now. I need a few days to recover and after that to relax, have a good rest and come back for next season."

"I think I will speak soon about that and we will deal with it."
