Lloris doubtful for start of season
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has suffered a fractured wrist during the close-season and could miss the start of the new campaign.
France international Lloris, who joined Spurs from Lyon in 2012, is the club's number one goalkeeper but has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.
A statement on Tottenham's official website read: "The club can confirm that Hugo Lloris has sustained a fractured wrist during the close season period.
"The France goalkeeper will continue to work alongside the first-team squad to build up his fitness in a bid to be ready for the start of the season.
"Our medical team will continue to monitor his rehabilitation and progress during pre-season."
