Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is seemingly in a mood for reunions this summer. The Northern Irishman has already signed two of his former players, Kolo Toure and Scott Sinclair, after taking charge at Celtic Park. They have already started working wonders at the club as Celtic scored a late winner against Hearts on Sunday to kick-start their season.
If reports from The Scotsman are to be believed, Rodgers is eyeing another reunion at Parkhead as he looks to offer Spurs keeper Michel Vorm an exit route from white Hart Lane. The Dutch international made his move to Spurs from Swansea two years back in 2014 and since then, he appeared just 21 times for the Lilywhites.
Vorm deserves much better than playing second fiddle to Spurs number one keeper Hugo Lloris and Rodgers is looking to offer the Dutchman a lifeline to revive his frozen career. During his time at Swansea, Vorm established himself as one of the best keepers in the Premier League and eventually national call-up for the Netherlands came his way.
Vorm was brought into English football in 2011 by none other than the current Celtic boss and the Dutchman played a key part for the Swans in their remarkable progress in the Premier League over the years. A move to Spurs, while he was at his peak, was a poor decision from the 32-year-old but there is no use crying over spilt milk.
Vorm does not have too many years at the top level left in him and a move to Scottish champions Celtic makes perfect sense. The Dutchman can sign off his career with some silverware at Parkhead and he could get regular game time with the Hoops ahead of Craig Gordon.
Given what Craig Gordon has delivered to Celtic over the years, he is nothing short of a legend at the Bhoys but the Scottish international is 33 now and has made some costly errors under Rodgers in Champions League qualifiers. Vorm will be a massive upgrade over the Scottish international courtesy to his top-level experience.
Vorm is capped 15 times for the Netherlands national team which is impressive considering the names he had to contend with like Krul and Stekelenburg. With his immense experience in Eredivisie and the Premier League, Vorm would be a massive addition to the Hoops.
