Tottenham Hotspur morning round-up: Michel Vorm worried, transfer priorities emerge

Michel Vorm

A round up of news this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm has told the Daily Star he hopes he’s not dropped for the League Cup game against Sheffield United this week.

Spurs go into the second leg of the tie slightly ahead (1-0) after the first match between the teams at White Hart Lane.

Vorm made a mistake when he tried to keep out Jeffrey Schlupp’s volley during the FA Cup game against Leicester City over the weekend.

ESPN claims Tottenham Hotspur are looking at moves for Dutch winger Memphis Depay and English striker Danny Ings.

The transfer window closes a week today and both individuals are reportedly high profile targets for Spurs.

Manchester United are mentioned as rivals for Depay, with Manchester City and Chelsea mentioned in connection with Ings.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has told the Guardian he’s disappointed with the manner his side gave Leicester opportunities to score during that FA Cup defeat.

The boss was left frustrated by his side’s inability to defend late into the game, creating the situation where Leicester were able to take advantage of a late dip in concentration.
