Spurs skipper Lloris: Should Giroud leave Chelsea...?

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris is full of praise for France teammate Olivier Giroud.

France coach Didier Deschamps has encouraged Giroud to leave Chelsea in January in order to secure greater playing time.

And Lloris says: "One thing is certain, it is that Olivier (Giroud) is a great competitor.

"The jersey of the France team is close to his heart. He is one of our leaders within the team.

"Everyone wants to see him again in March, but in a different context of course."
