The injury that Spurs captain Hugo Lloris picked up during Tottenham’s defeat to Brighton has put the team in a difficult situation.
While Paulo Gazzaniga has proved an able deputy for the Frenchman, Spurs now only have the inexperienced Alfie Whiteman as a back up to the Argentine.
With the club confirming that Lloris had dislocated his elbow at the Amex Stadium, the French international is not expected to return to action for a few months.
Dutch outlet NOS report that in a bid to address the problem, Tottenham have re-signed former goalkeeper Michel Vorm on a short term contract until the end of the season.
Michel Vorm, who spent five seasons at the club since arriving from Swansea City in the summer of 2014, saw his contract with Spurs run out at the end of last season.
The club opted against giving the 36-year-old a new contract and Vorm has been a free agent since then.

Signing Vorm is a no brainer at the moment given Lloris’ injury as it is very hard to find another free agent who has the same amount of experience. The Dutchman also knows the club, the players and the coaching staff well. He will thus be able to come in and do a job until the end of the season.
