Hugo Lloris speaks to Sky Sports about his future and admits he wants to play in the Champions League again

Hugo Lloris insists he does not want to speak about a Tottenham exit because of his respect for the club - but he does want to play Champions League football again.

France's number one goalkeeper, 28, is reportedly one of Manchester United's prime targets to replace David de Gea should the Spaniard join Real Madrid this summer, and there are other clubs in Europe who could tempt Lloris with football in Europe's top club competition.

But the Frenchman, who signed for Spurs from Lyon in 2012, has previously stated he will not force a move away from White Hart Lane and is happy to remain at White Hart Lane and pursue Champions League football with them next season.

After he played 90 minutes in France's 4-3 defeat to Belgium on Sunday, Lloris told Sky Sports News HQ: "I am still a Spurs player.

"I have a contract until 2019 and I have a lot of respect for the gaffer, the club and my teammates, so I don't want to speak about it.

"For any player you need to play at the highest level to improve yourself to help your national team to improve. I think every player wants to play in the Champions League because it is the highest level. We work for that and I hope to play Champions League football again. 

"At the moment, De Gea is still Manchester United keeper so I have no need to talk about that."

Lloris has been superb in his three seasons for Tottenham, making over 100 appearances for the club and signed a new five year deal in July 2014
