Your Tottenham Hotspur morning headlines on Thursday, September 14.

Huge Lloris decision confirmed

Tottenham's 25-man squad for the coming season has been submitted to the Premier League and goalkeeper and former captain Hugo Lloris has been included by Ange Postecoglou.

The new Spurs boss had said that Lloris, who publicly declared his desire for a new challenge after last season, was unlikely to be registered but that has not proved to be the case with the World Cup winner having been unable at this point to find a new club.

His replacement, Guglielmo Vicario, has started life in north London on a high with Fraser Forster returning to understudy duties following his brief spell in the team for the latter half of the campaign.

He has been struggling for form and confidence although he does have the backing of new boss Ange Postecoglou as well as his national team coach Fernando Diniz.

Following Brazil's 1-0 World Cup qualifier win in Peru, with Richarlison having a headed effort ruled out for offside, the 26-year-old opened up on the issues that have been impacting him off the pitch.
