Tottenham’s Hugo Llorez, 36, may be on his way out of the club.
The Boot Room, a British outlet, cited a report by Dean Jones of GiveMeSports on Jan. 1 as the source of the rumors.
“Spurs could terminate Joris’ contract,” the outlet reported.
According to Jones, Yoris and the Spurs could end their contracts and part ways. However, it may take time to sort out the financial details.
“Yoris is on his way to a termination,” Jones said. I don’t know how easy it will be,” Jones said.
“Contract terminations are rare in football because of the money involved and the complexity of it all.”
Since joining Spurs from Lyon in 2012-13, Yoris has played a key role in the Spurs organization for 11 seasons. As a reliable first-choice goalkeeper, he played every season with a solid defense. He also served as the team’s captain, providing outstanding performances and leadership.
But as time went on, I began to falter. He became less stable and more prone to lapses in judgment. In the last season, 2022-23, he even gave away goals when he shouldn’t have.
This season, new manager Enzi Postecoglou wanted a new goalkeeper rather than trusting Yoris. Tottenham brought in Guglielmo Vicario from Serie A.
The choice was the right one. Vicario has been an excellent stopper in the Tottenham goal. Joris naturally comes off the bench. Yoris, who earns £120,000 a week, hasn’t started a single game this season and is out of the rotation.
After more than a decade with the club, the legend has been forgotten by the Spurs. Therefore, Yoris wants to move to a new team and continue his career.
He wants to leave Tottenham in the January transfer window, but because his contract is not up, he will incur a transfer fee. It would be unaffordable to pay a veteran with a transfer fee who is nearing the end of his career. Therefore, Yoris would like to change teams after being released from his contract.
The Boot Room predicts that “terminating the contract would be the best option for all parties involved.”
