The worst kept secret in football was confirmed yesterday evening as Spurs officially announced the joint signings of Michel Vorm and Ben Davies from Swansea. Meanwhile, Gylfi Sigurdsson goes the other way as part of the deal.
Left back Davies has signed a four year contract and will presumably go straight into the team ahead of the new campaign and hopefully bring some stability to a position that has posed a problem for at least two seasons.
In theory, Vorm will battle with Hugo LLoris for the keeper’s jersey but the Dutchman is most likely to feature solely in the Europa League and in the domestic cup competitions. We welcome Ben and Michel while wishing Gylfi all the best at the Liberty Stadium.
