Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was linked with a move away from the club throughout the summer transfer window.
The 36-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the north London club and he needed to leave in order to play regularly.
Tottenham have already signed Guglielmo Vicario as their first-choice goalkeeper and Lloris is likely to be a squad option for them for the rest of the season.
The £100k-a-week star was linked with a number of clubs recently but the French international failed to secure a transfer away from the club eventually.
A report from Football Insider now claims that Tottenham could look to terminate his contract and let him move on as a free agent.
Apparently Newcastle United tried to sign the player on deadline day. French outfit OGC Nice were keen on signing the player as well.
The report adds that Hugo Lloris did not manage to agree on personal terms with his suitors and therefore the deals collapsed eventually.
