COMMENT By Dominic Toner
Michel Vorm agreed a new contract with Tottenham on Friday and the goalkeeper is ruining his career.
Spurs announced the deal on their official Twitter account and the 33-year-old is set to stay at White Hart Lane until 2018.
Vorm is currently the second-choice option to Hugo Lloris and should not be content with sitting on the bench.
The experienced goalkeeper is unlikely to dislodge one of the Premier League’s and possibly the world’s best in Lloris, but could certainly gain regular-first team football at a number of top-flight clubs.
He has impressed Spurs supporters in his 26 appearances for the club and could still be one of the best in the league if given regular game time.
Vorm completed a move to the north London club in 2014 after a good spell with Premier League side Swansea.
The Holland international made 97 appearances for the Swans and kept an impressive 31 clean sheets in that time.
Everton are great example of a club that Vorm could comfortably become a number one goalkeeper, with the uncertain Maarten Stekelenburg currently the first-choice option.
Vorm is currently at a peak age for a goalkeeper at 33 and would have a long list of clubs after him if he left Spurs.
The shot-stopper will now continue to fight for a place against Lloris, but he has certainly shown enough to suggest he is a wasted talent sitting on the bench.
