Tottenham move closer to Lyon's Lloris

Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed that Tottenham are moving closer to the transfer of Hugo Lloris.

Spurs have been keen on the France national team goalkeeper for a while now with Aulas confirming that talks progressed with Daniel Levy on the weekend.

Aulas suggests that Luka Modric's completed move to Real Madrid will allow Tottenham to pay what Lyon want for Lloris with an £11.9million deal now very much a likelihood.

"The sale of Modric from Tottenham to Madrid is important, as is the amount of the transfer," said Aulas at a press conference.

"It's true that on Sunday we had a lot of contact with Daniel Levy. Things progressed during these talks, both qualitatively and quantitatively, but nothing's concrete yet.

"I've informed Hugo of these discussions. We'll have to be a bit patient to find out.

"The decision belongs to Hugo who, I think, will be approached by Tottenham very soon. The clubs' positions have moved closer together."
