Veteran goalkeeper Michel Vorm is expected to leave Tottenham this summer, according to Football.London’s Spurs correspondent Alisdair Gold.

The Dutchman has made just four appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s men this season, falling beneath Paulo Gazzaniga in the pecking order.

And writing for Football.London, Gold suggested that the £40,000-a-week stopper [Spotrac] will be let go by the club at the end of the season, with his contract set to expire and foreign player spots at a premium.

Good move for Tottenham?

Yes. Vorm is well down the pecking order these days, with Gazzaniga and Hugo Lloris firmly ahead of him in north London, and letting him go would free up space on the wage bill and in the squad for a new signing, while also giving a younger player the chance to come through the ranks and have more involvement with the first team setup. It really is a win win, and Vorm, who is 35 now, must recognise that his career is coming to an end. Given the opportunity, he would surely much rather go and get some minutes elsewhere instead of whiling away his last couple of years on the bench.

Likely to happen?

Almost certainly. It would surely take a pretty special turn of events for Spurs to offer Vorm a new deal now, and with the end of the season upon us, it would appear that his fate is sealed. Where he ends up remains to be seen, but it is fairly safe to assume that the Dutchman will not be a Tottenham player when it all kicks off again in August. He has been a fine servant for the club, but everything must come to an end, and his time in north London is surely done now.
