Tottenham are in talks to re-sign goalkeeper Michel Vorm until the end of the season, according to the London Evening Standard.
Vorm left Spurs at the end of his contract in the summer and has been without a club since. The 35-year-old fell down the pecking order last season, losing his spot as Hugo Lloris’ deputy to Paulo Gazzaniga.
But with Lloris facing at least two-and-a-half-months on the sidelines because of the dislocated elbow he suffered against Brighton earlier this month, Vorm looks set to return to provide cover while the captain recovers.
The Standard claims talks are underway between the Dutchman and Tottenham. The author of the story, Dan Kilpatrick, noted on Twitter that reports in Vorm’s native Holland are also suggesting discussions have taken place.
If he does return, Vorm is unlikely to play unless Paulo Gazzaniga is injured or suffers a serious dip in form. His arrival will add to doubts over Alfie Whiteman’s Spurs future – the 21-year-old clearly isn’t considered ready for a run in the first team.
