Liverpool & Arsenal face snub from Dutch international transfer target

Published Add your comment

Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm has pledged his future to the club, despite ongoing speculation linking him with a move away from the Liberty Stadium.

The Dutch goalkeeper has been very impressive since joining the Premier League side two years ago and has attracted attention from a whole host of clubs, with Liverpool one of the favourites.

Vorm was reported to have told a Dutch magazine that it would be very special to reunite with ex-boss Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool, after it was he who signed him from Utrecht for just £1.5m.

Despite the interview with a Dutch paper, Vorm has responded saying that his comments were lost in translation and he has insisted that he is happy at Swansea despite the ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool.

Speaking to the club's official website, Vorm said: "The comments that came out of the interview from the Dutch press have been lost in translation.

"They asked me about Brendan, and I said I enjoyed working under him. Of course I did, he was the man that brought me here and we had a successful season.

"But I did not say I wanted to go to Liverpool or anywhere else - I am very happy here at Swansea. Not once have I told my agent or the chairman Huw Jenkins that I want to leave here."

As well as Liverpool, Vorm has also been linked with Arsenal and Spanish giants Barcelona, but the Dutch stopper was quick to put down all rumours about a potential move abroad.

"The Barcelona story was a shock to me.

"It's quite funny when I think about it, because I had a couple of days free so I wanted to fly somewhere close and sunny, so my family went to Barcelona.

"I had a great time with my wife and my two kids. We went to Barcelona Zoo, but I can tell you we were not buying souvenirs at the Camp Nou."

Vorm then rounded off the interview by saying he was looking forward to his future, especially with it being at Swansea City.

"This season has been incredible for us," he added. "We are doing so well in the league and, of course, we won the Capital One Cup which means we are playing in Europe next season.

"I've played European football before and it will be great for everyone at this club - the players, staff, directors, supporters and also the city of Swansea.

"Everyone is looking forward to being a part of that adventure - myself included - but first of all we must ensure that we finish this season strongly."
