Hugo Lloris has rubbished claims that he is set to leave Tottenham for Monaco.

The France goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a summer shift to the newly-promoted Ligue 1 club but says he is happy to continue testing himself in England.

"What's happening in Monaco is good for Ligue 1 and for this great French club, because PSG need a challenger," Lloris told le10sport.

"But personally, I left to go abroad, to try and build something on a personal and sporting level and I don't intend to come back soon."

The former Nice and Lyon keeper added: "There are some things that are difficult to refuse, but only if it allows you to go one step further.

"And then there is another thing - I am too much of a Nice man to go there!"
