FIFA are understood to be looking into the details of Michel Vorm’s move from Swansea City to Tottenham Hotspur, Sky Sports has reported.


Michel Vorm


Vorm moved to Swansea from Utrecht in 2009 for a £1.5m fee and a 30% sell-on fee was included in the deal, with the Dutch club claiming they are due a windfall after Vorm left Swansea for Spurs.


But Swansea insist the goalkeeper left on a free transfer and was part of a swap deal also including Swans’ left-back Ben Davies and Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who moved to the Liberty Stadium.


Swansea have issued a statement insisting that the transfer is above board and has already been ratified by FIFA. “The transfer of Michel Vorm was conducted and concluded correctly under Premier League rules,” a spokesman said.


“It was approved by the Premier League and also FIFA via their TMS (Transfer Matching) system,” the reply continued. “While we have been in contact with Utrecht as a matter of courtesy, we will continue to conduct our business in the best interest of our football club and our supporters, and not based on the views of other clubs.


“Unlike some countries abroad, we do not have third party ownership of players in Britain. The club will not be commenting further on this matter.”


Vorm made 89 appearances for the Welsh club, helping Swansea to victory in the 2012-13 League Cup. He was also part of the Netherlands’ squad for the World Cup in Brazil this summer, making a late substitute appearance in the third-place play-off.
