Hugo Lloris Deal Could Help Keep Tim Krul At Newcastle

6 years ago

One piece of positive news today is that Tim Krul looks a bit more likely to be still at St.James’ Park this coming season.

Constant rumours of the Newcastle keeper heading to Tottenham now look to have ended, with Hugo Lloris agreeing a five year contract extension to stay at White Hart Lane.

The French goalkeeper, widely regarded as one of the best in the World, looked to be heading to PSG this summer but Spurs have put an end to that by sealing the new deal.

Lloris arrived in 2012 and will now be working with his third Tottenham manager;

“The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino is important – I have a god feeling, he’s ambitious.

“Everything’s clear in my head and if I have signed a new contract it is because I trust the club and I am sure we will progress.”

While Krul’s involvement during open play in Brazil was limited to a few seconds, the Newcastle keeper’s penalty heroics will no doubt have made his name a lot more familiar with clubs potentially looking for a new goalkeeper.

Like other players at Newcastle, Krul will be looking for activity in the transfer market by Mike Ashley to convince him that there is ambition at the club.
