Keeper set for Eredivisie return?
Ajax are believed to be interested in signing Swansea’s goal-keeper Michel Vorm in January after impressing in the Premier League.
Vorm signed from Dutch side FC Utrecht in the summer and made his debut against Manchester and despite conceding four he made an incredible eleven saves, more than any other goal-keeper in the previous season, he then went on to impress even more saving a penalty against Wigan ensuring Swansea’s first points in the Premier League
Whilst in his native Holland, Vorm was given the nickname ‘The Penalty Killer’ by the Utrecht fans and has seemingly brought that form to the Premier League and could command a fee in the region of £5million.
Swansea City keeper Michel Vorm has been in excellent form this term and is back on the fringes of a spot in the Dutch national team as a result. Interest from Ajax may well tempt the 28 year old into considering a move back to the Eredivisie but boss Brendan Rodgers is sure to fight to keep the custodian who on several occasions this season has been the difference between success and failure.
The Welsh club’s home form has been terrific and Vorm has conceded just two goals in six games at the Liberty Stadium and has become something of a cult hero with the Swansea City fans who will be loathed to lose such a talented performer.
The fact that Ajax would be able to offer Vorm European football will become all the more appealing if by January the newly promoted Swans have failed to keep up their early season form.
