Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris reveals that he does not plan to end his career at the club and opens the door to a future move to the MLS.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has hinted that he would be interested in a future move to the MLS.

The 32-year-old has been a fixture in the Spurs goal since arriving at the club in 2012, making more than 300 appearances across all competitions and being handed the captain's armband in 2015.

However, Lloris does not see himself retiring in North London and mentioned the MLS as a possible next destination when his Spurs career comes to an end.

"I do not think I'm going to finish [my career] at Tottenham. I still have a few years ahead of me. In any case, I will do everything to make the most of it. You also have to know when to say stop at the right time, but I'm not against the idea of ​​discovering something new," he told France Football.

"That could be the United States. I do not know, I always had trouble looking in the medium term. I am more focused on the short term. In football, things go so fast. We are here tomorrow and after that we're elsewhere. You have to be careful. I could finish over there, we'll see.

"I never really opened the doors [to the idea of leaving Tottenham] because I felt like I was happy where I was,. It's not a lack of ambition on my part, it's just that I'm part of a project and, every year I've seen the progress to reinforce my decision. If tomorrow I felt there was a regression, certainly I'd then ask the question [about leaving].

"[Mauricio Pochettino]'s got the perfect profile [for a big club]. He could work at these great teams. Now, he's part of a project. He's shown a lot of loyalty to Tottenham. He's invested 200% in the club and its supporters. I have a strong relationship with him, on a human level too. And that does not distort the professional relationship at all. We make the difference [together]. I like his football ideas, I like his personality. I am very proud to be part of his team.

"The thing that has to change is for us to win a major trophy. We had this opportunity in the Champions League, we were also not far off in the Premier League. But there is regularity, the club is competitive. I can tell the difference between the state of the club the day I arrived and today. The club has evolved at an incredible speed."

Lloris is expected to start for Spurs away to Olympiacos in their opening Champions League group game on Wednesday, having led the club to their first ever final in the competition last season.
