Nottingham Forest boss Stuart Pearce has no intention of sending fit-again striker Dexter Blackstock out on loan.
Bryan Ruiz found himself frozen out at Fulham under Felix Magath, but will be offered a clean slate by Kit Symons.
Swansea’s Dutch international goalkeeper looks set to swap south Wales for north London, where France international captain Hugo Lloris looks established as Spurs’ No.1.
The arrival from Arsenal of Lukasz Fabianski, who has vowed to nail down the position of Swansea’s main keeper, has triggered the move for the 30-year-old Vorm.
Spurs will also play in the Europa League this season, and Vorm insists that the demands of the fixture list will give him opportunities under new manager Mauricio Pochettino.
"Every club has two top goalkeepers in their squad," Vorm told De Telegraaf.
"It suits the club's philosophy that there are two of us with Hugo and me. Especially when we see that Tottenham is active in a lot of competitions.
"In my eyes this (Tottenham) is a really big club."
I assume people will agree with me that Lloris and Vorm are 2 of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League, in saying that I'm amazed that 2 such high quality players end up competing for the same position at Spurs. Is there a commentary in this comparing the goalkeeping situation at Spurs and Liverpool?- shea666
