LOAN WATCH: Lloris, Vorm will welcome Pau Lopez to Tottenham with open arms

Tottenham Hotspur skipper Hugo Lloris has said that the club's new signing Pau Lopez will be welcomed with open arms by him and back-up keeper Michel Vorm.

The Spain U21 international keeper has joined the North London club in a season-long loan move from La Liga club Espanyol.

"I know a bit about him already – he played in La Liga last season for Espanyol and he's a young keeper with a lot of quality," Lloris told the club's official website.

"We will try to make him comfortable on the pitch and off the pitch. It's important to make him feel quite settled within the squad – it's a new experience for him outside his country and I think it's good for Michel, for me and for Toni (Jimenez) too. He will train with us and he will help us to continue our improvement.

"Playing as a goalkeeper is never easy but mentality is important. We try to work well, try to be involved every day for the team and try to improve our levels. These are things that are important for all the players but when you're a keeper these things are especially important."

The 21-year-old made 36 league appearances for Espanyol last season.
