Football.London have confirmed that Michel Vorm has now been included as a part of Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League squad following Hugo Lloris’ injury.
The report claims that Lloris is not expected to feature for the remainder of the calendar year after dislocating his elbow in Tottenham’s last outing against Brighton.
Pochettino has since made the decision name Vorm in his European squad after Paulo Gazzaniga was left as the only fit goalkeeper at the club with first team experience.
Rules regarding Champions League squads are very strict and clubs generally aren’t allowed to make changes to their squad until the knockout stage commences in February.
However, Lloris’ injury meant that Spurs had the option of making Vorm a part of their squad for the remainder of the group stages.
Tottenham have made a poor start to their Champions League campaign and have taken just a point from the first two fixtures.
They will be hoping to register their first win of the campaign when they welcome Red Star Belgrade to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday night.

One does wonder why Spurs let Vorm leave if the coaching staff didn’t trust the likes of Alfie Whiteman and Brandon Austin. However, the Dutchman with his experience will certainly be an asset for the side both in the Premier League and Champions League. Bringing him back to the club was a no brainier considering he was still a free agent.
