Rumours of a move to Barcelona gathered pace after Vorm spent last weekend in Barcelona with his family after being given extended time off by Swansea with the Welsh club not having a game in the Premier League at the weekend.

Vorm's future at Swansea has been the subject of speculation for some time with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool credited with an interest in the Dutchman.

Barcelona have also been linked with Vorm as they search for a replacement for Victor Valdes with the keeper set to leave Camp Nou after turning down a new deal at the club.

Vorm insists his trip to Barcelona was just a coincidence and he denied travelling there to sign a deal with the Spanish giants.

"So no, I was not in Barcelona to sign a deal," Vorm told Voetbal International.

"No one of that club contacted my agent Wessel Weezenberg."

Vorm does expect Barcelona to sign a new goalkeeper as expected Valdes does leave the club this summer.

"However I expect something will happen there for the goalkeeping position," added Vorm. "If Valdes will leave, Barcelona have to adapt."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
