Tottenham now odds on favourites to sign classy Dutchman
After much speculation over recent weeks Tottenham fans will be overjoyed to hear that their number one Hugo Lloris has signed a new deal to keep him at the club for another five years.
The sweeper keeper has been in sensational form for Tottenham, particularly over the last year, and it was always going to be a bit of a struggle to hold onto him.
But the news means that Tottenham can now concentrate on strengthening other areas of the park with their No.1 goalkeeper situation sorted.
But with Brad Friedel reaching old age and Heurelho Gomes gone Tottenham will need to sign another keeper this close season as backup for Lloris.
There has been a lot of speculation about Tottenham making a raid on Swansea for various players and one of those was Dutch keeper Michel Vorm.
He’s been a really solid player for Swansea and, at 30 years of age, he’s got years left in the tank. Tottenham fans may be interested to know that their club is now odds-on favourite with English bookmaker Bet Victor to seal the deal for the keeper this summer, if he does move clubs, at odds of 4/5.
Having spent his first six years as a senior pro at Utrecht and Den Bosch in Holland, Vorm moved to Swansea in 2011 and has been a virtual ever present between the sticks for the club since.
He’s played 89 league games for the club and has also turned out 14 times for the Holland national team. He also went to the World Cup with the Dutch squad this summer.
We think that he would be a really solid addition to the squad. Let’s have a look at him in action. Tottenham fans: do you reckon Vorm would be a good back up keeper?
