£100,000-a-week Tottenham injured goalkeeper will return in January

After sustaining a severe elbow injury last month, Spurs shot-stopper Hugo Lloris has revealed that he is targeting a come back to action in winter. France international was in real distress in the defeat to Brighton on October 5, with Neal Maupay giving the hosts the lead after only three minutes.

After initially catching a cross, Hugo was forced to drop the ball to avoid carrying it into the back of his own goal, and while Neal was on hand to tap home, goalkeeper’s momentum carried him backwards, and his weight landed on his arm which resulted in it bending in an awkward angle.

Frenchman required treatment for several minutes on the pitch before he was eventually taken off on a stretcher, with the Spurs noting earlier this month that he had undergone surgery after suffering a dislocated elbow and ligament injury.

It was added in that official club statement that the 32-year-old goalkeeper would come back to training early next year, but the World Cup winner himself has suggested that he could come back as early as January, or at least that’s his target for now assuming that he doesn’t suffer any setbacks along the way.
