France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has confirmed he wants to leave Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The 36-year-old goalkeeper joined Tottenham 11 years ago following a $10.5m move from Lyon and has been an ever-present for Spurs ever since his move, making 447 appearances in total for the Lilywhites.
French number one wants to leave North London
Amid rumors the French number one is set to leave the Londoners and re-join his first club Nice, Lloris said in an interview with the French news outlet Nice-Matin, “It’s the end of an era. I have a desire for something else. I will carefully study what is possible”.
The veteran goalkeeper has struggled for form in what has been a dismal season for Spurs, who finished in a very disappointing eighth and missed out on all forms of European football next term.
Lloris did not rule out a return to the French Riviera, however, he was adamant he was not forcing his current club into a move. He added: “Nice is my city, my club, my roots. There is a season that must end, as best as possible, with the goalkeepers in place. I am not demanding, I have never forced things. We’ll see where fate takes me.”
