Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has extended his contract, keeping him at the club until 2022.
The new deal will definitely be a relief to the club after reports of interests from other European clubs emerged.
Lloris joined the Spurs from Lyon and has made 189 appearances since his arrival.
The Skipper is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the game and he believes the new deal further stamps his importance and need for the team.
“I’m very pleased with this new contract, and of course that’s the way I show my commitment to the club, my team-mates and the gaffer,” Lloris told the club’s website.
“It shows again how much I believe in this project and hopefully the best year is ahead. I’m really enjoying my time at Tottenham, it’s a great feeling to be the captain too.
“I think I can be proud of that. It’s not easy for a foreigner to come to England and win the respect of your team-mates, of the fans and of the English people.
“I’m really pleased with that, but I’m still thinking that it’s not enough. I want more, and that’s why I work so hard, and again, hopefully the best year is ahead.”
The 29-year-old made his debut
for Spurs in a UEFA Europa League match against Lazio on 20 September 2012.
