Dutch club vent anger at FIFA over Tottenham Hotspur star Michel Vorm's re-sale fee from Swansea City

Michel Vorm

The Dutch club FC Utrecht are still awaiting a fee they say is owed to them from Swansea.

The future of one Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper is in the news at the moment, with Hugo Lloris linked to Manchester United if David De Gea makes a much talked about move to Real Madrid this summer.

But the past of their second choice stopper is also making the news.

Michel Vorm currently sits on the bench in support of the French number one at Tottenham Hotspur. The Dutchman arrived at Spurs from Swansea City in 2014 after impressing in the South of Wales.

The 15 caps Netherlands international had previously been with Utrecht in the Dutch Eredivisie and it is here where the problem lies.

When he left Utrecht for Swansea in 2011, for a fee reported to be around £1.5 million by the BBC, the Dutch club believed they had agreed a sell-on clause as part of the deal.

But a year on from his move to Spurs Utrecht have not received a penny from Swansea and lost an appeal to FIFA for the cash has gone ignored.

VoetbalZone report Utrecht managing director Wilco van Schalik as stating:

"I'm very disappointed. The precise reasons for the decision we have to take in, but already it is clear that Swansea can apparently get away with opaque maneuvering...

"I find this not only unfair and unjust, but it also means that the entire system of resale rates on the journey will be...

"If this is accepted, clubs top players in the future will leave for zero euros."

Vorm has played just 14 games for Tottenham since his move last summer.
