HUGO LLORIS has been included in Tottenham’s 25-man squad list for the Premier League after failing to secure a move away from the club this summer.
The World Cup-winning Frenchman had been expected to quit the club after 11 years’ service during the close season.

Postecoglou had downplayed the chances of Lloris being included in the North Londoners’s Prem squad list if he was still at the club in September when he was asked last month.
Yet Lloris, who is three appearances shy of 450 for the club, was named as one of 17 non-home-grown players in Tottenham’s selection on Wednesday.
It leaves Postecoglou with no fewer than FIVE senior keepers to choose from, with Vicario and Lloris joined by Fraser Forster, Brandon Austin and Alfie Whiteman, though the latter is currently out with a serious ankle injury sustained in pre-season.
Alongside Lloris, Eric Dier has also been named as one of the non-home-grown players by Spurs.
The defender has yet to play a competitive match since Postecoglou’s appointment in the summer.
Dier was also strongly linked with a move away from the club during the transfer window.

However, both Lloris and Dier are now part of Tottenham’s squad list for this season.
