Lloris to quit Tottenham for Champions League football

Hugo Lloris will consider leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, the Guardian has reported.

Lloris signed a five-year contract at White Hart Lane in the summer of 2014 but having played regularly in the competition for former club Lyon is keen to experience the Champions League again – as many of his France international teammates do.

Spurs are currently sixth in the Premier League table, seven points adrift of fourth-place Manchester City with five games of the season to play.

Paris Saint-Germain have been mooted as suitors for the France captain, who will mark three years at Spurs this summer, although PSG are also thought to be keen on Chelsea’s Petr Cech, while Lloris would rather remain in English football.

Lloris cost Tottenham £8m when he left Lyon for London in 2012. The 28-year-old has gone on to play more than 100 times for Tottenham, having started his career with Nice. He made his senior international bow in 2008 and captained the team for the first time two years later, being appointed captain prior to Euro 2012.
