Tottenham Hotspur have struck at deal with Swansea City to sign goalkeeper Michel Vorm and left-back Ben Davies in a part-exchange deal, according to the Daily Mail.

Liverpool are also keen on the Swansea duo, but Spurs look set to win the race for their signatures, after offering Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson as bait.

Swansea will receive cash as well as Sigurdsson. The deal is said to be worth £15m in total.

Crystal Palace have agreed a fee with Spurs for Sigurdsson, but the 24-year-old seems to prefer a move to Swansea.

He spent a brief loan spell at the Liberty Stadium in 2012, scoring seven goals in 18 Premier League games.

Since joining Spurs from Hoffenheim for a fee in the region of £6m two years ago, Sigurdsson has netted 13 times in 83 matches in all competitions.

Vorm, 30, is likely to become Tottenham’s second choice goalkeeper, behind France captain Hugo Lloris, who signed a new five-year contract at White Hart Lane earlier this month.

However, Davies, 21, could stake a claim to be the number one left-back at Spurs, competing with Danny Rose for a regular starting spot.

Davies started 32 Premier League games last season.
