Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers hailed the signing of Michel Vorm as a "steal" after the Dutch keeper performed more heroics in their 2-0 victory over Fulham at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea were leading 1-0 thanks to Scott Sinclair's 56th-minute effort when Vorm pulled off his second spot-kick save of the season with an athletic diving stop to his right to deny Clint Dempsey and allow Danny Graham to put a seal on Swansea's fourth win of the campaign by flicking home a Mark Gower corner in added time.

And having brought the 28-year-old to south Wales from FC Utrecht for just £1.5million in the summer, Rodgers said: "People will tell you that a good goalkeeper will get you up to 10-plus points and everyone knows we have a top keeper."
