Lisandro Lopez: Was a target for Tottenham towards the end of January

Lisandro Lopez: Was a target for Tottenham towards the end of January

With Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas finding himself short on attacking options, he sought to bring in reinforcements during the winter transfer window.

Reports in France suggest he made a deadline day approach for Lisandro, with a loan deal put to Lyon.

No agreement was put in place and Lloris feels Spurs have missed out on a player who would have greatly aided their cause.

The France international goalkeeper told L'Equipe: "Lisandro? It seems he almost joined Tottenham.

"He is a great player, charismatic and one who has given a lot to Lyon.

"He is a top player, who works hard for the team and can win matches. He is a player that deserves the best."

Meanwhile, Lloris insists his troubled start to life at Tottenham - as he found himself left on the bench after joining last summer - has been put to one side now that he has established himself as Villas-Boas' first-choice shot-stopper.

He added: "The start of the season is in the past. The coach and I have the same objective, which is to get the team as high as possible. Everything else is behind us."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
