Tottenham fans demand contract for Hugo Lloris after win over West Ham

‘Give him what he wants’: Tottenham fans demand new contract for Hugo Lloris after ‘unreal’ display in Carabao Cup quarter-final win over West Ham

  • Tottenham fans raved about Hugo Lloris display against West Ham on Twitter
  • French goalkeeper made two big saves to keep out Tomas Soucek headers
  • Lloris, who turns 35 on Boxing Day, is out of contract with Spurs in 2022
  • He recently said there was no offer but negotiations have reportedly begun 

Tottenham fans were enraptured by Hugo Lloris’ performance against West Ham as Antonio Conte’s side earned a 2-1 win to reach the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

And many supporters took to Twitter to demand that the Frenchman be handed a new contract with the club.

Lloris’ long stay at Spurs could be nearing an end as he and the club are yet to agree a new contract for the 34-year-old, but fans on social media hope his decisive display will be enough to convince Daniel Levy to offer him a deal.

Many Spurs fans said Lloris’ display was enough for him to be handed a new deal with the club

‘Hugo Lloris, man. New contract announced for his birthday on Boxing Day or we riot. Flawless, again,’ wrote user @charlieparrish.

Spurs fan Nick Davison also said Lloris deserved to be awarded with an extension of his contract after his heroics. 

‘The sooner Tottenham sort out a new contract with Hugo Lloris, the better. He’s been outstanding and is one of the best in the league,’ he wrote. 

Another Twitter user, Liam Murphy, said Spurs will struggle to find a replacement for Lloris, who joined the club in 2012 from Lyon.

He wrote: ‘We will not find a replacement to Hugo Lloris’ quality for a long, long time. Give him whatever he wants and let Antonio Conte put some silverware by his name.’ 

This fan felt handing Lloris a contract extension should be a priority for Tottenham’s board

This fan said Tottenham would not find it easy to fill Lloris’ gloves if he left the club next year

‘We will not find a replacement to Hugo Lloris’ quality for a long, long time. Give him whatever he wants and let Antonio Conte put some silverware by his name.’

Lloris has made 390 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham and is the longest-serving player left in the squad. 

He has played all 15 of Spurs’ Premier League games this season, staving off competition from Pierluigi Gollini, who joined on loan from Atalanta last summer.

But his future with the club remains unclear.

In August he said Tottenham had not yet approached him about a new deal and he is free to speak to foreign clubs from January ahead of a free transfer.

 ‘There is nothing from the club, to be honest,’ he said.

‘I don’t have to show my loyalty towards the club after nine years . 

Lloris showed his bravery to save at the feet of West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen in the 2-1 win

The Frenchman tipped a goal-bound header from Tomas Soucek over the bar in the first half

‘I’m just calm and relaxed and focused on myself and make sure that I’m ready to compete on the first game.

‘I always give my priority to Spurs and we will see what will happen. I’m not affected about that, I’m just enjoying football.

‘My only reason to wake up every morning is to work, enjoy the training session and enjoy the competition.’
