The former Swansea man is yet to make a single Premier League appearance this season, with Hugo Lloris understandably first choice for Mauricio Pochettino.

Vorm went from being the No.1 at Swansea City, to being an anonymous bench warmer at Tottenham; a decision many people just don’t understand.

“A lot of things happen in football. You make decisions and only when my career is finished will I know if it was the right decision or not,” he said.

“When I left Utrecht for Swansea, people asked me why I was going there because they were going down. Well look where they are now. They are an established Premier League club. It’s hard to say whether I have made the right decision or not. Only time will tell.

“People don’t always understand the choices you make in football, but I am very happy to be here. Sometimes you need new challenges and want to see how it is at a bigger club.”

At 31-years-old the Dutchman still has plenty of years at the top level ahead of him, but unless Lloris moves on he will surely find it difficult to nail down a starting spot at the North London club.

The Welsh club are currently two places above Vorm’s new side, with Swansea getting off to a great start and finding themselves eighth in the Premier League.

Moving to White Hart Lane may well prove to be a fantastic decision in the long run for Vorm, but at the moment it’s difficult to see where his game time is going to come from.
