Spurs’ Lloris rebuffs talk of a return to France

Hugo Lloris has reaffirmed his commitment to Tottenham and rebuffed talk of a return to his former club Lyon.

The 29-year-old, who spent five years at Lyon before joining Spurs in 2012, was asked about a possible return to Lyon at Monday’s press conference ahead of France’s date with Russia. And the goalkeeper was quick to pour cold water on the speculation.

“I really like Lyon but there’s not question about it. I’m very happy with Tottenham,” said Lloris, who was signed by Andre Villas-Boas.

“We have very important games to play until the end of the season, so we’re focused on that.”

Mauricio Pochettino’s side trail Premier League leaders Leicester by five points with just seven games left to play and are vying to win the club’s first title since 1961.

Lloris, who signed for Lyon in 2008, has established himself as Spurs’ number one and has appeared in all but one of Tottenham’s top-flight fixtures this season and conceded just 23 goals in the process.

The Frenchman, who has been capped 72 times by France, signed a new five-year contract extension at Spurs in the summer of 2014.
