Explosive – 2 EPL clubs in trouble over a goalkeeper transfer, could be dragged to court

Snehanjan Banerjee / 17 September 2015

Swansea city and Tottenham Hotspur may face trouble over the transfer of Dutch goalkeeper Michel Vorm as the Dutch international’s former club FC Utrecht is set to take legal action against the Wales side.

The Dutch sold a promising goalkeeper in Vorm to Swansea in 2011 for only £1.5 million and inserted a 30% sell on clause on the future transfer of the stopper. 

They agreed on a lesser fee as they were hopeful that the goalkeeper will grow a lot in future and will bring them much more money in future but they think that Swansea made such a deal for the shot-stopper which robbed them from their due earnings and are prepared to take action over this.

They were happy to Vorm doing at Swansea to become worthy of a huge transfer fee and hoping to get 30% of that transfer fee.

But that did not happen as Swansea sold the Dutchman to Spurs in a deal involving players and did not include a fee and they believe that they were robbed off by the Wales club.

The deal that took place between the two Premier League clubs involved Ben Davies along with Vorm to move to White Hart Lane Gylfi Siggurdson moving the other way round.

Dutch football magazine Voetbal International on Thursday explain that FC Utrecht are now set to drag the thing through CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) in an effort to get what they believe is rightfully theirs.

So it is a bad news for Swansea as well as Spurs
