The World Cup-winning goalkeeper is under contract with Spurs until 2022 but admits that he sees another move in him before hanging up his gloves

Hugo Lloris has revealed that he is not expecting to see out his career as a Tottenham player.

The France international goalkeeper has been with Spurs since 2012 and has taken in more than 250 appearances for the club.

He is tied to a contract through to 2022 and will be 35 by the time that agreement comes to a close.

The World Cup winner believes he will have either moved on by that point or be ready to take on a new challenge, with it not part of his plan to hang up his gloves in north London.

Quizzed during a Q&A sessions with Telefoot as to whether Spurs will be his last club, Lloris said: “I don’t think so.”

He has also admitted that his future with Tottenham will likely be tied to that of his manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Lloris has committed to two contract extensions under the Argentine coach and considers him to be one of the finest in the business.

He added: “My future is tied to Mauricio’s. That is certain.”

Lloris has been heavily linked with moves away from Tottenham in the past, with a standing as one of the finest goalkeepers in world football seeing him attract plenty of attention.

Real Madrid were reported to be weighing up a move amid their struggles to land a new No .1, before they finally lured Thibaut Courtois away from Chelsea.

A switch to Manchester United has also been mooted as the Red Devils have been forced to fend off regular rounds of speculation regarding David de Gea’s future.

Lloris is, however, adamant that he has never received a formal approach.

He told Telefoot that no offers were put to him on the back of captaining his country to global glory on Russian soil over the summer.

Spurs will be delighted to have avoided interest, with Lloris having been a key man throughout a spell which has seen him help to force the club into the Premier League’s top four and title contention.
