32 year old captain Hugo Lloris doesn’t believe he needs to think about a return to his homeland yet as he is thinking about being Successful with Spurs. The French goalkeeper clearly committed his future with the London club when asked by local media of his native France.
Lloris played 33 league games for Tottenham last season and also played an integral part in the team’s unlikely run to their first ever Champions League final. Naturally, after achieving the unprecedented under Mauricio Pochettino, the France No.1 doesn’t think about leaving just yet. Maybe even better things are expected by those staying on at the club while the likes of Christian Eriksen seek new pastures.
Specifically, Lloris was asked about a return to Nice, where he left in 2008. Tottenham purchased the France captain in 2012 from Olympic Lyon. The Spurs veteran goalkeeper left the door open for a return to Nice but only to Live in the city. Not as a player. That is partly because Lloris believes his immediate future is secure with Tottenham where he has a contract until 2022.
I’m still a fan, but I’ve career plans & I’m under contract at Spurs, where I hope we’ll be successful. Maybe the question will come later, but not today.”

As for the success Lloris speaks about, he has been a runner-up with Tottenham on two occasions: the League Cup in 2014-15 where he lost to London rivals Chelsea and the recent Champions League campaign where they lost to Liverpool in the final.
Tottenham meanwhile have another goalkeeper in waiting to replace Hugo Lloris. Paulo Gazzaniga made a grand total of 11 appearances: not unheard of for a back-up. He also has a solitary cap for Argentina and was behind Chelsea’s
