Vorm signs new Spurs deal

Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2018.

The news comes just a day after first-choice stopper Hugo Lloris committed to White Hart Lane until 2022.

Vorm, 33, joined Spurs from Swansea in 2014 and has made 26 appearances in all competitions.

"I feel respected by the squad and I'm the oldest in the group as well, so that’s special in the way that you try to help the younger lads - not only the goalkeepers, but also the outfield players in achieving big things," Vorm told the club's official website.

"To keep Hugo sharp too - I think that goes very well. The respect that I get from the staff and the connection I’ve got with everybody, especially with [goalkeeping coach] Toni Jimenez and the other goalkeepers – that makes me very happy.

"It's special [to sign a new contract]. When you come here you have expectations but you don't really know what's going to happen, although over the years I think I've done well on every level in the club and I think it's very important for me to see how it is to be at a big club.

"The fact that I can extend my contract here is very positive. I'm very happy here, my family is very happy and I've got a lot of respect for the staff and the players. To be honest, I can't name a negative point."
