Michel Vorm: Staying out at the Liberty Stadium

Liverpool are believed to have cooled their interest in Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm, with the Daily Star reporting that they have decided against making an offer.

The Anfield side had been linked with a move to bring Vorm to Liverpool to provide competition for Simon Mignolet, but reports suggest that they have opted not to move for the Swansea keeper, who himself has insisted that he is happy to stay in south Wales and fight for his place.

Vorm had been linked with a move to Liverpool, which would have seen him reunited with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers. The Northern Irishman signed Vorm for Swansea in 2011 and had been believed to be keen on bringing him to Anfield.

However noises from both camps suggest the deal is now dead, with reports that Liverpool are no longer interested and Vorm’s comments committing himself to Swansea City.

“I didn’t know they were planning to sign him [Fabianski], I can honestly tell you,” the Netherlands international told reporters from their pre-World Cup training camp.

“But at Swansea City I can see the club is growing and there is competition for everyone, and that also applies to me.

“Fabianski was a free agent, which I understood, and he has signed for four years and the present situation is that I will be there after the summer, so I have competition.

“It may be that Swansea are already responding to my departure but then there must be [an offer].

“As long as that is not the case, Fabianski and I will have to fight. I do not necessarily have to leave.

“Of course, if I can make a big step then I may do that. We will have to see in the coming weeks.”
