Michel Vorm has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Tottenham until the summer of 2019, the club has announced.

The Dutch goalkeeper joined Spurs from Swansea City in the summer of 2014, becoming one of Mauricio Pochettino’s first signings.

He has mostly been used in cup competitions and played a key role in Tottenham’s run to the FA Cup semi-finals in 2016/17 and 2017/18.

Tottenham had been linked with a move for Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, with Vorm expected to depart at the end of his contract.

But on Thursday, the club announced via Twitter that Vorm, 34, will be staying on for another year.

The extension represents one less position Spurs have to worry about this summer.

After signing a new contract last month, Pochettino has reportedly been handed increased transfer funds to overhaul his squad.

The likes of Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele are expected to depart, while Tottenham are said to be targeting Jamaal Lascelles and Jack Grealish.

Spurs fans will be expecting higher profile signings than that, but deals for Wilfried Zaha and Anthony Martial look difficult at this stage.
