Vorm could stay at Swansea
Michel Vorm doesn’t expect to leave Swansea City this summer, Sky Sports has reported, despite the club signing Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
Fabianski this week signed a four-year contract with the Welsh side, leading to speculation that Vorm could bring his two-year stay at the Liberty Stadium to a close. Vorm admitted he was surprised by the arrival of Fabianski but doesn’t feel it means he will be out the door.
“I didn’t know they were planning to sign him (Fabianski), I can honestly tell you,” Vorm told reporters in the Netherlands. “But at Swansea City I can see the club is growing and there is competition for everyone, and that also applies to me.
“Fabianski was a free agent, which I understood, and he has signed for four years and the present situation is that I will be there after the summer, so I have competition,” he added.
“It may be that Swansea are already responding to my departure but then there must be (an offer). As long as that is not the case, Fabianski and I will have to fight. I do not necessarily have to leave.”
Vorm acknowledged however that if an offer from a club competing at a higher level than Swansea was made, it was something he would consider. “Of course, if I can make a big step then I may do that. We will have to see in the coming weeks,” he confirmed.
The 30-year-old is currently with the Dutch national team preparing for the World Cup. He has 14 caps for the Oranje since making his debut in 2008, and has made almost 100 appearances for his club since joining from FC Utrecht.
