Daniel Levy must table new deal for £22,000-a-wk Tottenham player who could exit in summer
Michel Vorm is out of contract a the end of the season and could leave Tottenham on a free transfer – unless club chief Daniel Levy does something about it.
On Saturday, Vorm had a brilliant performance for Spurs as the club booked their spot in the FA Cup semi-finals by beating the shot-stopper’s form side Swansea 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium.
Early in the first-half, Vorm pulled off a stunning double save which stopped the Welsh club from getting back into the game.
The 34-year-old was standing in for Hugo Lloris and Mauricio Pochettino decided to rest the France international like he has done for most cup fixtures this season.
Even though Vorm is past his best and not playing very often nowadays, he is still a very good second choice goalkeeper and definitely deserves to be handed another one-year deal to stay in North London.

The Daily Star has reported that the 15-times Netherlands international is earning £22,000-a-week at the club, but Levy and his tough negotiating skills may be able to convince the shot-stopper to take a paycut in order to stay preserve his chance of potential Champions League football and yet more appearances in the cups next term.
Pochettino has a history of wanting three goalkeepers in his squad with Pau Lopez and Paulo Gazzaniga, so keeping hold of Vorm will ensure that he doesn’t have to waste precious time and money on another back-up option in the summer.
