Dutch outlet NOS has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have re-signed Michel Vorm on a free transfer after the goalkeeper was released by Spurs at the end of last season.
Vorm, 35, moved to Tottenham in the summer of 2014 and clocked up 47 appearances in all competitions. Last season, the 15-time Netherlands international was afforded just four outings by Mauricio Pochettino.
Paulo Gazzaniga was promoted above Vorm last season to number two, relegating Vorm to third. Captain Hugo Lloris has since dislocated his elbow, which is expected to keep him on the sidelines until the new year.
Without Lloris, Spurs have just Gazzaniga as a senior goalkeeper. The Londoners do have a number of options in the youth sides, but it seems Pochettino has moved to bring Vorm back to Spurs – months after he was released.
TBR’s view – Re-signing Vorm makes perfect sense for Tottenham
Spurs needed to bring in a goalkeeper with Lloris’ injury, as a problem for Gazzaniga would have meant debuts for the likes of Alfie Whiteman and Brandon Austin. But bringing Vorm in on a free solves that potential conundrum.
Pochettino can trust Vorm, after five years of working together at Tottenham and landing him on a free until the end of the season is the obvious solution to Lloris’ injury.
