Ange is the man: Tottenham Hotspur unveil Postecoglou as new manager

Tottenham will not stop Hugo Lloris if the goalkeeper decides to stay in January, according to Give Me Sport’s Ben Jacobs. The French veteran was unable to start in the summer window, and there was talk of canceling the contract, which may not materialize. Hugo Lloris was under some pressure to leave Tottenham either through a transfer or out of contract. The veteran star fell down the order after the arrival of Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli, who took first place with his deputy Fraser Forster. Ange Postecoglou seems happy with his choices and does not trust Lloris to help this team in the season. There have been plenty of links for the French veteran, with some deadline day reports suggesting interest from Newcastle United and OGC Nice. Nice’s interest turned out to be true as Lloris confirmed it and explained the reasons why he did not join the French clubs where he started his football career. The Ligue 1 side anticipated the arrival of the Tottenham star and completed the signing of Kasper Schmeichel on deadline day. As it stands, Lloris will remain a Tottenham player and the club will not stand in the way of their £100,000-a-week star if he chooses to stay. It means they will encourage the Frenchman to find a new club in January, as Ben Jacobs gave his two cents on the goalkeeper situation. Jacobs said:

Nice offer contract to Tottenham's Hugo Lloris - Get French Football News “If Lloris wants to stay at Spurs and not play until January, Tottenham will not stand in his way. So Tottenham will not force Lloris to leave the club. Tottenham will wait patiently and decide where he really wants to go. There is interest in Saudi Arabia, but Lloris didn’t bite.” – Newcastle looked at Lloris but they couldn’t give him game time either. So I think Lloris is a bit torn because he’s starting to understand, because he’s always been there and an integral part of the Spurs project, where he goes next, he might not get game time.” “There will be no game time with Tottenham either and if he wants game time he may have to go down a level or move to a position that is not his preference.” I think that’s why it was so difficult.” Lloris’ Saudi Pro League clubs are looking for his signature. But with their window now closed, the only open window in Turkey is over. So far, Turkish clubs have not shown much interest in the Frenchman. Tottenham’s situation is very frustrating as they were hoping to find a solution for their long-term goalkeeper. Out of respect, they decided not to block him if he decides to stay until January, but things could still change. Tottenham could consider terminating the contract if Lloris receives a new offer from elsewhere and decides to accept it. Free agents can still join European clubs, but for the £100,000-a-week star, who is on his final contract, things are looking very difficult at the moment.
