Lyon '99%' confident of keeping Lloris amid Tottenham interest

The Ligue 1 side are willing to allow the France captain, who has been linked with both north London outfits, to leave - but only if their £15.7m valuation is met

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has given Tottenham target Hugo Lloris an extra week to find a new club for himself, but he is now "99 per cent" certain that the goalkeeper will remain at the Stade de Gerland.

As earlier revealed, Andre Villas-Boas is particularly keen on the France international, while north London rivals Arsenal are also believed to be interested.

However, no club has yet met Lyon's €20 million [£15.7m] valuation and, while Aulas remains open to letting Lloris leave, he is now supremely confident that the shot-stopper is going nowhere.

"I have given Hugo one more week to reach an agreement," he told OLTV, the club's official channel. "But I think it's 99 per cent that he will stay with Olympique Lyonnais and I'm happy."

The 25-year-old Lloris, who has been capped 37 times by Les Bleus, joined Lyon from Nice in 2008 for a reported €8.5m [£6.7m].
