Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that goalkeeper Michel Vorm has left the club following the expiration of his contract.

The Dutchman joined Spurs from Swansea City in July 2014 in a deal worth £4.5m to become the understudy to Hugo Lloris and found his first team opportunities limited in North London.

This season, Vorm found himself further down the goalkeeping pecking order following the impressive displays of Paulo Gazzaniga who has now become the second choice keeper at the club with Vorm no longer even occupying a place on the subs bench.

The 35-year-old signed a one-year contract extension last July when the club decided to extend his stay after the player admitted that he did not have any other options (Football.London).

To release Vorm is certainly the right decision and will also allow Alfie Whiteman to step up to third choice, unless the club decide to recruit another goalkeeper which would not make too much sense considering Gazzaniga has more than shown this season he can fill in for Lloris.

Vorm made 47 appearances in all competitions during his time at Tottenham.
