Michel Vorm delivered his verdict on Tottenham’s new stadium plans, after the club released mock-up pictures of what it will look like when completed, saying it looks “amazing”.
The new 61,000-seat stadium will be unveiled in 2018 and boasts a retractable grass field and an artificial surface underneath, allowing NFL games and concerts to take place.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, Vorm described the released pictures of Spurs’ new home as “amazing” and claimed that there are “exciting times” ahead for the club.

Currently being built in north London, the new stadium is expected to include the longest bar in a United Kingdom stadium as well as heated seats, a micro-brewery and an in-house bakery.
The BBC reported chairman Daniel Levy as saying it will: “redefine sports and entertainment experiences”.
Costing a huge £750million, the new Stadium will create around 3,500 jobs in the area when it’s finished, and will house a 17,000 capacity single-tier stand – the largest in the United Kingdom.
Although Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be forced to relocate during the 2017-18 season, Holland international Vorm is delighted with the new-look stadium.
However, it remains to be seen if Vorm will be given a chance to play at Spurs’ new ground, with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2018 as he remains as back-up to Hugo Lloris.
Since his move to Spurs from Swansea in the summer of 2014, Vorm has managed just 27 league and cup appearances for the north London giants.
