Tottenham has set out to extend the contract of Dutch international star Michel Vorm until 2019.

The 33-year-old Vorm, joined Tottenham from Swansea City in 2014 and has made 43 appearances as back-up to first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. His contract was due to expire this summer, but Tottenham have exercised their option to keep him at the club for a year further, according to Standard Uk.

Vorm has also had limited chances to impress in the Premier League, with Lloris’ form confining Vorm to 11 League outings in four seasons at Spurs.

Speaking in November about Vorm’s dedication, Mauricio Pochettino said:

“When people complain, but if they aren’t good enough on the pitch or training session and there’s no commitment to the club or you, then that’s easy to say: ‘You are out’.

“He [Vorm] is professional. Players like him fight and show great quality and that’s my problem. It’s easy with those who complain. With players like Vorm, it’s difficult to say: ‘We are playing you and not you’.

“He complains with his performances in the training session. That’s his way to complain. To show me he deserves to play. That is the way to complain to the manager and not knock on the door.”
