Liverpool linked Dutch star discusses future following GK addition

Michel Vorm

Michel Vorm has established himself as one of the strongest goalkeepers in the Premier League since moving to Swansea City from the Eredivisie in 2011.

Vorm's three years in South Wales have seen the Dutchman regularly starring on the way to making just under 100 appearances, and this year he featured as Swansea enjoyed their first European campaign in decades. 

Liverpool have long been rumoured to hold a budding interest in the former FC Utrecht man, with recent reports suggesting a £5 million bid was in the offing. It is believed that Vorm would be a valuable addition at Anfield and excellent competition for Simon Mignolet.

But for now, Vorm isn't looking any further than staying with the Welsh outfit, revealing that he is prepared to battle Arsenal's FA Cup hero and new Swans signing Lukasz Fabianski to keep goal at the Liberty Stadium. However, that may change if a suitable offer for his services arrives.

“I didn’t know they were planning to sign him (Fabianski), I can honestly tell you,” Vorm told Dutch reporters.

“But at Swansea City I can see the club is growing and there is competition for everyone, and that also applies to me.

“Fabianski was a free agent, which I understood, and he has signed for four years and the present situation is that I will be there after the summer, so I have competition.

“It may be that Swansea are already responding to my departure but then there must be (an offer).

“As long as that is not the case, Fabianski and I will have to fight. I do not necessarily have to leave.

“Of course, if I can make a big step then I may do that. We will have to see in the coming weeks.”

The Swansea stopper is also challenging for the Netherlands number one jersey at this summer's World Cup in Brazil, and may find himself a much sought after player if he features in a strong Dutch tournament.
