Tottenham agree deal with experienced star as Pochettino steps up business

Tottenham Hotspur have decided to extend the future of Michel Vorm as the club announced that a new deal had been agreed with the goalkeeper on Thursday.

The Dutchman has been with Tottenham since the summer of 2014 when he completed a move from Swansea City, having settled for a back-up role behind Hugo Lloris.

Vorm’s contract with Spurs had been due to expire this summer and with Paulo Gazzaniga available in the squad while Southampton’s Alex McCarthy is being linked with a switch, the Dutchman looked to be heading out.

“The Club can confirm that we have activated the option to extend Michel Vorm’s contract until 2019.” a statement from the club’s official website read on Thursday.

The experienced 34-year-old star has made just 11 outings in the Premier League during his Tottenham career, with a further 32 appearances coming in all competitions.

Vorm’s contract renewal is one of several new deals for various Tottenham players in the post-season after the likes of Davin Sanchez, Kyle Walker-Peters and Harry Winks recently extended their deals.
