Michel Vorm has suggested that he could leave Tottenham at the end of this season after growing frustrated at his lack of first-team action at White Hart Lane.

The 31-year-old Dutchman joined Spurs from Swansea City in a £5million deal last summer but has started only three Premier League matches for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season.

Hugo Lloris’ form has been so good this term that the Frenchman remains Spurs’ undisputed first-choice shot-stopper, and Vorm admits it has been a frustrating campaign for him.

He had previously been a regular starter for Swansea, featuring in 89 Premier League matches for the Welsh outfit in his three seasons at the Liberty Stadium.

Vorm, who moved to the Swans from FC Utrecht in the summer of 2011, still has three years left on his Spurs contract but is unwilling to stay at the club if it means he will have to spend most of his time on the substitutes’ bench.

He said: “Once the season is over I’ll sit down with the club staff and my agent to weigh things up.

“I signed a four-year contract last summer, but I don’t see myself sitting on the bench for that time. I think I’m too good a keeper to do that.

“I was hugely disappointed to be left out of the League Cup final, although I am a professional.

I did not get an explanation either before or after the final. But Spurs wanted to win the cup, and the manager picked his strongest side including his first-choice keeper.”
