Sun 14 November 2021 | 20:00

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is planning talks with the club over a contract extension but he has not ruled out a possible return to Ligue 1.

Lloris

has been on the books of

Tottenham

since the summer of 2012 when he joined from French club

Lyon

for a reported fee of £11.8 million.

The France captain has been superb for Spurs over the years and is the first-choice goalkeeper for the North London club.

The 34-year-old’s current deal at the club runs until June 2022 and he is yet to sign a new deal.

Lloris’ priority is to stay at Tottenham but If he decides to leave north London as a free agent, he has the option of returning to France, where he previously played for

Nice

and Lyon.

"I do not close any doors,"

Lloris

said on Sunday, when asked about a potential return to French football

.

"I give my priority to Spurs. We're still looking for a trophy. I want to help the club in its development. We have already experienced great things and great epics with our supporters as vice-champions in Europe and England. I want to continue calmly, always with this notion of pleasure.

"I try to take as much pleasure as possible on a daily basis. As long as I feel good, I want to make the most of it. I want to be honest with myself. I'm not necessarily worried. But the priority remains Spurs."

Quoted in

L'Equipe

, Lloris added:

"We will have discussions in the coming weeks. We must already rectify the situation of the club and adapt to the demands of the new coach Antonio Conte and his staff. I've been there for a few years. It's still a pleasure."

France

defeated

Kazakhstan
