Report shares what Conte has made clear to £100k-a-week Spurs player about his future 'behind the scenes'

Antonio Conte has told Hugo Lloris that he wants him to sign a new contract and stay at Tottenham Hotspur next season, according to a report from Football London.

Lloris’ future is currently up in the air. His deal with Spurs expires at the end of the campaign.

He had previously hinted that he may be on the move sooner rather than later. However, he has remained a vital part of the Tottenham side. And with that, hopes have been raised that he may yet extend his stay in North London.

It was reported this week that there is quiet confidence that Lloris will stay. Talks over a new deal are set to intensify in the weeks ahead.

Interestingly, it would appear that the appointment of Conte has proved to be pivotal. Football London reports that he has made it clear behind the scenes that he wants Lloris to stay next season.

It is noted that Conte has won everyone over at Tottenham. And thus, there is hope that the Italian’s presence will convince the 34-year-old to sign an extension.

It is still early days for Conte at Tottenham. And it has not been all plain-sailing for the Italian so far. But there is a lot to like about the application and results that they have got so far.

Keeping Lloris – who earns £100,000-a-week – would be a further boost. He has been excellent for much of the last 12 months. And it is currently unclear who is going to succeed him when he does step aside.

Conte clearly feels that Lloris has plenty more to offer. And it would seem that the Frenchman is ready to hand Spurs another victory under their new boss.
