Lloris is reportedly on a United shortlist of possible replacements for De Gea, who is said to be considering his future with only one year left on his Old Trafford contract and Madrid keen on taking him back to Spain.

In comments carried in The Sun, Lloris said: "For the moment there is a goalkeeper at United and we are watchful of his situation. You have to keep a certain calm with all this.

"If things should happen then they'll happen naturally."

Lloris, 28, joined Spurs from Lyon in 2012 and has made 99 league appearances. He is under contract at White Hart Lane until 2019.

Tottenham must not let goalkeeper Hugo Lloris leave White Hart Lane this summer if they are serious about breaking back into the top four, according to defender Jan Vertonghen.

France international Lloris, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, was one of the stand-out performers for Spurs last season, who rallied to end the campaign in fifth place and so qualify again for the Europa League.

He's a great guy, great captain, great goalkeeper and a brilliant player for us.

He's the captain, very important and this season he was one of our best players.

He's been outstanding for us and if you want to continue growing as a club you have to keep your best players and Hugo is one of them.

I hope Tottenham can keep him. It will be a sign for everyone next year that we want to compete in the Premier League.

Spurs target wants to 'stay in Premier League'

Southampton's on-loan defender Toby Alderweireld hopes his future can be resolved quickly.

The Belgian has enjoyed a successful loan at St Mary's from Atletico Madrid.

Southampton do have an option to buy for around £6.8million but it understood Atletico could revoke that by making a payment.

If that occurred the Spanish club could either keep him or sell elsewhere, and both Manchester City and Tottenham have been linked with the 26-year-old.

He said: "I hope to know where my future is before pre-season starts because it's two years in a row that I have done a pre-season with a club and then on August 31 I have left.

"So I hope this time I can do a pre-season with the club that I will be playing with and have a good year.

"The situation is frustrating and I don't know what will happen. I would like to make a decision but the club has to decide first.

"There are three options - stay with Atletico, stay with Southampton or go to another club. So we will see what happens.

"I've had a fantastic year, I can't lie about that, so yes I'd like to stay in the Premier League."
