Spurs boss AVB not involved with Lloris signing

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas didn't want to sign former Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, it has been revealed.

The People says Spurs insiders insist the manager wanted to use the £8million fee as extra finance to secure the signing of Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho.

Chairman Daniel Levy pushed the deal to sign Lloris, while it is believed that AVB preferred to sign a younger keeper to groom as a future No.1, while keeping Brad Friedel as his first choice gloveman for at least this season.
