The times have reported that Newcastle United were looking to sign Hugo Lloris from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Friday.
Newcastle United tried to sign Hugo Lloris from Tottenham Hotspur
Newcastle took steps to bring in the £100,000-a-week (Spotrac) goalkeeper on a one-season loan to St James’ Park.
Lloris is under contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2024.
According to The Times, there would have been no rental fee associated with the deal.
Lloris has opted to turn down a potential move to Newcastle, who play in the UEFA Champions League this season and also aim to finish in the top four of the Premier League again.
We’re not surprised to hear that Lloris has turned down a possible move to Newcastle.
Nick Pope is currently the number one goalkeeper at Newcastle.
That probably won’t change any time soon.
Yes, Lloris has UEFA Champions League experience but he’s 36 now and Newcastle manager Eddie Howe probably wouldn’t give him much playing time.
Lloris would have been a backup goalkeeper at Newcastle.
There was no reason for the keeper to join the Magpies, even on loan, when all he wanted was to warm up the bench week in and week out.
