Hugo Lloris: Pleased by Gareth Bale's form

Bale netted in Tottenham's 1-1 draw with Swindon on Tuesday and while goalkeeper Lloris was pleased by his team-mate's form, he stressed it was early days for the player linked with a move to Real Madrid.

"It's nice to see him in good form," Lloris told Sky Sports.

"But pre-season is long so we need to concentrate on our work. It's good to see him but it's just the beginning."

Spurs will be bolstered by the arrival of Paulinho from Corinthians in the forthcoming season and Lloris sees that as an indication of the club's growing reputation.

"It's a good thing for us to have a Brazil international in our team," added the France No.1.

"It shows that the club is still developing and improving because we can have now some great players like Paulinho."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
