TOTTENHAM goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has signed a new two-year contract at the club.

Lloris' current deal was due to expire in the summer, but Tottenham have managed to tie the 35-year-old down to an extension.

A two-year deal has been agreed, with Antonio Conte a major factor in keeping him in North London.

Reports first emerged last month that Lloris was in talks over a new deal, amid interest from former boss Jose Mourinho at Roma.

Lloris had also been linked with boyhood club Nice on a free transfer upon the expiry of his current deal.

But a new contract scuppers all talk of a move away from Tottenham, and means the club's record appearance holder in the Premier League still has plenty left in the tank.

Lloris first joined Spurs from Lyon in 2012, and has played a whopping 395 times for the club.

He was recruited for just £12million by Andre Villas-Boas and has gone on to become a stalwart at the club.

However, he is still yet to lift any silverware with Tottenham, whose last trophy was the League Cup way back in 2008.

In Lloris' time, Spurs have twice lost in League Cup finals and were also beaten by Liverpool in the 2019 Champions League final.

On the international stage, though, he has enjoyed far more success.

The 136-cap stopper picked up a runner's-up medal at Euro 2016 final before going one better at the 2018 World Cup in Russia - with France crowned champions.

Lloris wore the captain's armband as France secured their second World Cup triumph, and he also added the Nations League trophy to his list of international honours this year.
