The departure of Jan Vertonghen has understandably taken up the majority of the limelight at Tottenham over the past few weeks, however, the club also lost another loyal servant at the end of the season in Michel Vorm.
The Dutchman was the main backup to Hugo Lloris for his first few seasons at the club before losing his number two spot to Paulo Gazzaniga two years ago.
Although he did not play too many times in his final few seasons at the club, the former Swansea man was a respected voice in the Tottenham dressing room.
The goalkeeper, who left the club last season before signing another short-term contract a few months later following an elbow injury to Lloris, has admitted that he is ready for his next challenge.
The 36-year-old insisted that training on a regular basis with the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son has helped to keep him sharp.
“I’ve been catching balls from Harry Kane and Son every day for the past few seasons. It doesn’t make you any worse.”
The experienced shot-stopper also admitted that he is looking closer to home for his next club. He added: “A club in the Netherlands or Belgium would seem like something to me.”

Vorm still looks quite fit and he certainly looks as if he has a couple of more years in him. While he has made a few mistakes over the last couple of years, it cannot be easy for anyone to perform when you play as rarely as the 36-year-old did. I am sure he will get back his rhythm and confidence with a few games under his belt. With the experience he has, I would imagine that he would be a valuable acquisition for a mid-table Eredivisie side.
