While all the focus over recent weeks has been on whether Jan Vertonghen will sign a temporary contract extension, another Spurs player whose deal runs out at the end of this month is Michel Vorm.

The experienced goalkeeper was released by Spurs last summer but returned to North London just three months into this season after the Lilywhites lost Hugo Lloris to a long-term injury.

The Dutch international penned a deal until the end of the season and has only featured in one FA Cup tie against Norwich City since his return.

Vorm did not exactly cover himself in glory in that game as Norwich eliminated Spurs on a penalty shootout, largely due to a goalkeeping error late on in normal time.

The 36-year-old’s contract originally ran until the end of June but Sky Sports have now reported that Spurs have asked the goalkeeper to stay until the end of the campaign.

Vorm has reportedly agreed to do so and will depart Tottenham after the final nine games of the season.

In all likelihood, Vorm will not be used in the final nine games. However, we certainly could not afford to take the risk of allowing him to leave in case of an emergency, not only in terms of injuries but also in terms of players testing positive to COIVD-19. Vorm will also come in useful during training for the likes of Kane, Son, Lucas, Bergwijn, and co.
