Tottenham have confirmed they re-signed former goalkeeper Michel Vorm on a deal until the end of the season.
Reports in the Dutch press had claimed that a deal was in the pipeline, and they have been proven correct and Spurs says the keep is returning to the club.
The 35-year-old was released in the summer but, having been unable to find a new club, has been brought back as cover following the injury to Hugo Lloris.
The Frenchman suffered a dislocated elbow in the 3-0 humbling at Brighton last week and has been ruled out for the rest of the year.
Vorm has returned to the club to strengthen the goalkeeping ranks, where Paulo Gazzaniga is the only fit senior professional.
A club statement read: “As a free agent, Michel has been able to re-sign outside of the two designated annual transfer windows and will provide additional goalkeeping cover following the elbow injury sustained by Hugo in the match at Brighton earlier this month.”
Vorm initially joined Spurs in 2014 from Swansea and made 47 appearances in five years as an understudy to Lloris. His last outing was in a 2-2 Champions League draw at PSV Eindoven last October and he will be in the matchday squad for Saturday’s Premier League visit of Watford.
Meanwhile, in further good news for the club, chairman Daniel Levy has confirmed injured duo Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso are set to return to full training.
The deadline-day signings have suffered an injury-hit start to their Spurs careers, with Sessegnon yet to feature due to a hamstring injury while Lo Celso picked up a hip problem playing for Argentina last month.
However, Levy confirmed in a meeting with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust last week that the pair are due to be back in full training during the current international break.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
