Lloris happy committing long-term future to Tottenham

Hugo Lloris is happy to have committed his long-term future to Tottenham.

The France goalkeeper agreed a new five-year deal before the World Cup and signed it on his return in July.

"The decision was made before the World Cup," said Lloris, who faces QPR today. "I had some good chats with the chairman about the ambition and future of the club. The conditions were good for me.

"We found an agreement and I'm happy for that. It was about ambition, definitely, not money. I am a competitor and I know that in the Premier League it is difficult to get trophies because there are a lot of top teams, but I know Tottenham has ambition to grow and improve year on year."

He added: "I think everything is done for players to improve at Tottenham. We need maybe some stability after two years with two managers and we have to work together, keep a good spirit in the changing room and get some great performances, because last season we know that we did not do enough against the top teams in the League."
