The second-choice goalkeeper made 11 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur last season with his last in the FA Cup semi-final defeat

Tottenham Hotspur have activated an option in Michel Vorm’s contract to extend his time at the club until June 30 2019.

Spurs’ back-up goalkeeper had been linked with a move away from the Lilywhites this summer with his current terms expiring this month.

But Tottenham will have the Dutchman contracted for another year which keeps them in a strong position.

If the club do still intend on letting Vorm leave, they will now be able to earn a fee or it could be Pochettino wants to keep the former Swansea City custodian as back-up to captain Hugo Lloris.

Spurs’ second-choice goalkeeper made 11 appearances during the 2017/18 campaign and kept five clean sheets.

He impressed during the 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final success at his old club Swansea on March 17 with a notable double-save early in the second half.
