The advantages of Michel Vorm being at Tottenham are certainly worth considering.
The Dutchman receives a good wage, plays plenty of cup matches and is second in line behind one of the best goalkeepers in the world. His presence at White Hart Lane also suggests Spurs could turn to him as a no.1 if Hugo Lloris were to leave the club.
But, while Lloris remains at Tottenham, is the 31-year-old's career in north London really going anywhere?
Vorm may be able to cherish cup winner's medals at Spurs this term, while he is indeed a guaranteed starter should Lloris become suspended or injured.
Every top goalkeeper, though, surely craves the no.1 shirt? And, with the Frenchman firmly holding onto it at Tottenham, Vorm is surely denying any footballer's basic instinct by remaining at the club - especially at his age.
These are all factors the 31-year-old will no doubt have considered when leaving Swansea for Spurs last summer. But, now, he has seen proof of what was initially a potential situation first hand.
The key, of course, remains Lloris's future. If one of the world's biggest clubs comes in for him, Tottenham won't need to sign anyone else should he actually leave. As long as he remains, however, Vorm risks becoming the next Brad Friedel by staying at White Hart Lane - and Friedel at least had plenty more game time to start with.
