Desperate Tottenham re-sign Michel Vorm as emergency cover for injured keeper Hugo Lloris

VETERAN keeper Michel Vorm has rejoined Spurs as emergency cover for injured skipper Hugo Lloris.

Dutchman Vorm, 35, left Tottenham in the summer after five years at the club.

Vorm made 13 Prem appearances and played 47 games in total after his £3.5m move from Swansea.

It was part of a combined deal in the summer of 2014 that saw Ben Davies moving with him from Wales and Gylfi Gigurdsson going the other way.

The Dutchman has been out of contract since leaving Spurs.

But the North Londoners made contact after Lloris’ arm injury in the defeat at Brighton ruled the Frenchman out for the rest of the year.

Vorm has been seeking a new club ever since he was released and is understood to be in good shape despite not playing.

He was close to joining Liverpool as cover when Alisson picked up an injury earlier this season.

Lloris fell awkwardly after he spilled Pascal Gross’ cross to gift Neal Maupay a third-minute opener for the Seagulls.

Medics spent five minutes treating him in the goalmouth before he was carried off on a stretcher and taken to hospital.

A statement from Spurs read: “The findings have shown that although surgery will not be required, our club captain has suffered ligament damage and is not expected to return to training before the end of 2019.”

Vorm has agreed a short-term deal to the end of the season.
