Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is willing to put his desire for a new contract on hold in order to concentrate on a vital run of fixtures.
Lloris, a key performer for Spurs, is keen to remain at White Hart Lane beyond the expiry of his current deal in 2019, but the club are unwilling to pay the reported £100,000 per week he wants.
That has left negotiations at a stalemate and the France international wants to put talks on the backburner and focus on two important games this week - a Champions League clash with Monaco followed by a Premier League trip to Chelsea at the weekend.
"There are times during a season when as a player you have to think about yourself and there are times when you have to think about the team - and this is one of those times when it is more important to be focused on the team," he told a number of national newspapers.
"I don't think this is the right moment to talk about my contract, but I want to repeat my commitment is to the club and there is no rush.
"I am under contract until 2019 and I enjoy a great relationship with Mauricio Pochettino, Daniel Levy and, of course, the fans, so there is no need for anybody to worry."

Mauricio Pochettino insists Harry Kane is happy at Tottenham and says the striker should not compare his contract with counterparts in the Premier League.
Spurs opened talks with Kane earlier this year over an extension to his current deal, which runs until 2020 and is understood to be worth around £50,000 a week.
A resolution, however, is yet to be found, with Tottenham determined not to dismantle their strict wage structure.
Hugo Lloris remains the club's highest earner on around £80,000 a week and the goalkeeper is also yet to extend his deal at White Hart Lane, which expires in 2019.
For us they are players that are very important, Harry and Hugo.
They are very happy to be here and we are very happy that they are here.
Maybe there are a lot of rumours that can affect our fans but the fans need to be quiet and have no worries about this because the players show their commitment to the club, they want to be here for the long term.
I think the club and the players are talking about maybe improving or having extended contracts. In the future I think it's not a big problem to do.
