Premier League ‘keeper could snub rivals advances

Next Story

Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm has responded to speculation linking him with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, saying he is happy to stay with the Welsh club beyond the end of the season.


Vorm has been a revelation in goal for Swansea during their maiden season in the Premier League, helping them steer clear of the relegation battle and all but secure their place in English football’s top flight with four games remaining.


Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea have all been linked with a summer swoop for the 28-year-old, with Chelsea in particular keen on bringing in reinforcements between the posts with little in reserve beyond first choice shot-stopper Petr Cech.


However Vorm says he is happy to stay put with Swansea for now, although he did suggest he would be open to a move to either Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge – saying ‘you never know what might happen’ when quizzed about his future.


“You never know what happens but I don't really think that I'm going to leave the club in the summer," Vorm told BBC Sport.


"My family loves it here. I cannot imagine that I'll leave the club after one season especially after the way we've performed.


"You never know what happens of course but I'm very happy here."


Manchester United would appear to be an unlikely destination for Vorm after David de Gea’s form came good after a shaky start to life at Old Trafford.


A potential switch to Tottenham is a possibility however, with Spurs said to be interested in taking the former Utrecht keeper to White Hart Lane as a solution to their goalkeeper conundrum.


Spurs boss Harry Redknapp’s first choice ‘keeper Brad Friedel is nearing the end of his career at 40-years-old, while back up option Heurelho Gomes has been tipped to return to PSV Eindohoven in the summer and Carlo Cudicini is not deemed a long-term solution to the Lilywhite’s problems.
