Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has signed a new contract which keeps him at the club until 2022.

The 29-year-old has been in talks with Spurs for more than a month over a new deal, but has finally completed fresh terms.

Tottenham will laud Lloris' signature as a huge boost, given a host of top European clubs have been reportedly monitoring his status.

The Spurs captain joined the club on Deadline Day in 2012 from Lyon, and has made 189 appearances for the North London club since.

Lloris' new deal offers another boost to Tottenham's recent drive to tie down their top talents to fresh long-term contracts.

Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen have extended their deals in recent months.

"I'm very pleased with this new contract, and of course that's the way I show my commitment to the club, my team-mates and the gaffer," Lloris told the club's website.

"It shows again how much I believe in this project and hopefully the best year is ahead. I'm really enjoying my time at Tottenham, it's a great feeling to be the captain too.

"I think I can be proud of that. It's not easy for a foreigner to come to England and win the respect of your team-mates, of the fans and of the English people.
