"Hugo Lloris has undergone further assessment this morning after sustaining a dislocated elbow in our match against Brighton on Saturday", Tottenham said in a statement.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be sidelined for the rest of the year after suffering a dislocated elbow in a dismal defeat at Brighton on Saturday.

France head coach Didier Deschamps said on Monday that Lloris would nearly certainly not be fit to return until the new year.

An official announcement on the Lilywhites' website revealed Lloris had damaged ligaments in the fall, with the club captain not expected to resume training before the end of 2019.

Speaking earlier at Clairefontaine, Deschamps said: "I talked to him after he recovered emotionally from what happened".

"It is hard to give you an exact date in terms of how long he'll need to recover. It is hard to say how long he will be out, I am not a medical specialist", Deschamps told a press conference.

Hugo Lloris will nearly certainly miss the rest of 2019 due to an elbow injury, according to France head coach Didier Deschamps. The possibility of a fracture has been ruled out, but the ligaments have been damaged. I'm not an anatomy specialist.

His worldwide manager, Didier Deschamps, had earlier broken the news at his press conference before Tottenham confirmed his prognosis. "That's nearly a certainty".

However, following more tests, it was confirmed the 32-year-old is expected to miss the remainder of the calendar year.

Lloris, captain of both Spurs and France, would have joined up with Les Bleus for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Iceland and Turkey but now misses out.

News of the injury capped a miserable week for Spurs after they conceded seven goals at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, as well as the further three in their away loss at Brighton.
