Michel Vorm transfer a no brainer

Former Dutch goalkeeper Michel Vorm is currently in the last 7 months of his contract and will be available to sign a pre-contract in just 20 days.

Rodgers brought Vorm from Utrecht to Swansea for £1.5 million in 2011 and the two were successful in their stints at the Welsh club together.

Brendan went on to manage Liverpool and went within a whisker of winning the English Premiership, Vorm made a move for 3.5 million pounds to Tottenham in 2014.

For Vorm, however, the man who was backup ‘Keeper to the Dutch national side at 2 world cups has seen his career fade.

He has made just 10 appearances in 4 years for the North London club and is yet to receive a cap this season.

He looks likely to move regardless at the end of the season, however, Celtic could yet sway the Dutchman to a Paradise move in January.

Craig Gordon has sown his frailties in Europe and again yesterday domestically, Dorus de Vries has barely played and Conor Hazard is still a wee bit too young at this stage.

From Celtic’s perspective, we need a high-quality player as our custodian.

From Tottenham’s perspective, they would like to make some money back on the player.

Lastly for Vorm himself, Celtic can offer not just a place for European football, domestic trophies and week in week out football, it will give him the chance to rekindle his career under Rodgers.

Brendan consistently gets the best out of players, himself and Vorm had a strong rapport with Vorm angling for a move to Liverpool in 2013, saying a reunion would have been ‘special’.

It would be in everyone’s interests if Vorm came to Paradise in January, changes need to be made and this one won’t cost a lot and will go a long way fixing a recurring problem for Celtic.
