Another Spurs player could now be heading to Saudi or Turkey after being frozen out – report

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has shared an important update on the future of Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, with the Saudi Arabian and Turkish transfer windows remaining open.

Who has left Tottenham?

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, has started to reorganize the squad in his own image after offloading a number of players who were no longer needed.

The most tragic departure of the group was Harry Kane’s big-money move to Bayern Munich. Other players that left Tottenham during the summer transfer window included Sergio Reguilon, Joe Rodon, Djed Spence, Harry Winks, Alfie Devine, Troy Parrott, and Dane Scarlett.

Tottenham have had a successful start to the new Premier League season thus far; remaining unbeaten over their opening four league matches with brilliant wins over Man United, Bournemouth, and Burnley. Despite the British transfer window closing, defender Davinson Sanchez and midfielder Tanguy Ndombele secured deals to Turkish club Galatasaray because their window doesn’t close until September 15.

Speaking to Nice-Matin early in the window, the Frenchman admitted he was seeking a move away from north London.

“We are arriving at an important moment, whether for the club or for me,” said Lloris.

“An era is coming to an end. I’m going to sit down and quietly research what is likely to be possible because I desire other things. However, I never lose sight of the fact that I still have one year left on my contract with Tottenham and that it is never easy to forecast what will happen in football.

“Right now, I need to focus on fully recovering from my injury. Even if I’m on vacation, I keep up with my routine and workouts. My objective is to reach the top by July, after which we’ll see what the future has for me.


Reporter O’Rourke shared an update for Football Insider, stating that Lloris’ departure is still very much in the cards despite being frozen out by head coach Postecoglou.

After Lloris’ last-ditch attempt to return to his previous club Nice fell through on deadline day, the 36-year-old might yet move to Turkey or Saudi Arabia as those countries’ transfer windows are still open.

How good is Hugo Lloris?

Lloris has played for Spurs in 447 competitive matches across all competitions over the past ten years (Transfermarkt), but it’s time for him to leave N17 after many devoted years.

As the most capped player in France history, surpassing Lilian Thuram, a legend of the Les Bleus, Didier Deschamps once referred to Lloris as a “exemplary” person.

After Lloris tied Thuram’s record, Deschamps remarked, “Records are intended to be broken.

“It’s the longevity of two exemplary players, two great professionals who have both kept themselves at a very,very high level. These records mean something. Some are more anecdotal than others, but this one speaks for itself.”

The former Lyon star will be a brilliant capture for whichever signed manages to land him next, and it will be interesting to see where he does indeed end up.
